Just a few shots of all sorts of vehicles doing the noosa hill climb, had a great time. The things at the end were called rage buggys, they have motorcycle engines in them, they are awesome! There were a lot of different vehicle classes in this event so there were a lot of different types of cars.
Prescott Hill Climb British and Midlands Championship
The Prescott Gold Cup Weekend Sat 1 & Sun 2 Sept 2012 - 9am start
Congratulations to Aylesbury's Trevor Willis who clenched the new hill
record on Sunday 2nd September 2012, 36.24secs in an OMS CF25-RPE. This has
been a long standing record, previously set by Scott Moran (36.35 secs).
Speed Hill climbing is one of the oldest forms of motorsport, with the
earliest events taking place in the late 19th Century in the UK and Europe.
The sport follows a very simple format which hasn't changed since its
inception; all vehicles are timed from point A to point B from a standing
start. In 1947 the RAC formalised speed hill climbing in the UK with the
start of the British Hill climb Championship (the first such championship
in British Motorsport) and the championship is still going strong to this
The 17 round series runs from Scotland to Devon and from the Channel
Islands to Northern Ireland and features a huge variety of cars from humble
saloons through to F1-engined, purpose built single-seaters running within
a class structure. Come and see the fastest cars and drivers on what is
often the deciding round of the Championship
I decided to record some of the day to share my experience.
Great motorsport with cars from different classes.
