Knox Mountain Hill Climb 2013 Saturday highlights
Canada Motor Sports
A brand new video for the 2013 season... Knox Mountain Hill climb 2013
Saturday highlights. The Knox Mountain Hillclimb, is run annually on Knox
Mountain Park Road, in the City of Kelowna. The road, while paved, is
narrow with off-camber corners, and steep grades; a nice Sunday drive, but
hardly a race track. It is 2.2 miles (3.5km) long, and climbs approximately
800 feet (245 meters) in elevation for an average grade of 6.7%.
Past its 50th year, Knox Mountain is the longest annually running paved
hillclimb in North America. The event attracts top drivers from throughout
the Pacific Northwest, looking for the challenge and thrill of being
Cars are run one at a time, each trying to reach the top in the lowest
elapsed time. Drivers/cars compete in various classes from open wheeled
formula cars to powerful large engined GT cars. But, each hopes to be "King
of the Hill", earning the fastest time of the weekend.
The current hill record is 1m:37.065, held by John Haftner of Vancouver,
British Columbia. Times under two minutes are considered exceptionally
fast, with few drivers achieving that and even fewer sedans having ever
achieved that. Most times fall between 2m00s and 2m30s. To achieve top
times, speeds in excess of 160kpH must be reached on the short straights.
The road corners are known by their "numbers" and include three
switchbacks; each corner has its own features varying from steepness to
camber, to steep drop-offs if you go too wide.
A great group of cars screaming up Knox... Sunbeam Tiger, Mustang Boss 302, Minis, Civics,
Miatas, a stunning V8 powered MGB-GT, 240z, Shelby Daytona Coupe, Porsche
911 Carrera and GT3, BMW, Toyota and a tricked out VW golf riding on an
Audi TT platform with a 450+ HP 4 cylinder!
Thank you to Bryan Fulton and all the volunteers and drivers. A great day
