The latest news for the 2010 season is that Connaught Competition Engines have kindly agreed to become the title sponsor for the Irish hillclimb and sprint championship in 2010. This welcome support from a well known and highly successful engine building company is a great endorsement for Irish Hillclimbing.

The overall championship has been won by a Connaught powered car since 2007 and many of the top finshers in the overall championship are relying on Connaught prepared engines. Owner Phil Price was delighted to put something back into the sport after the sucess of the last few years overall and also the sucess of Simon McKinley’s giant killing Mk2 Escort.
