There is a real buzz about hillclimbing this year despite the current economic problems that the country is facing. The motor clubs are looking to push the costs of competing down and give real value to the competitors. To this end it is up to all competitors to try to support the discipline in these trying times. Further more, if you know of someone who has a car in a garage and would be interested in doing a couple of events then please encourage them to go hillclimbing or sprinting. Its only by the support of competitors that our sport can survive and grow.
