Pre-Season Forum 2010

The latest news for Irish hillclimbers is that the pre season forum for competitors is taking place on March 7th in the Midway Maldron Hotel in portlaoise. All competitors are invited to attend both existing and also new competitors to the sport.

The current hillclimb committee are currently working on a number of issues before the season gets up and running with a view to really improve our sport for both competitors and hillclimb enthusiasts nationwide.

The biggest news is that the proposed competitor marshalling initiative has been shelved for this year as a number of other routes to improve marshalling are investigated.

There will also be an announcement regarding the new inter-provincal cup scheme as proposed by Rory Stephens at the last forum.

Competitor views and ideas to improve the sport and its profile will be welcomed.
