Get ready for an action-packed race weekend for Trident Tyre Centre Legend Of The Lakes Hillclimb 2018. The 1.4km track winds along the edge of Mount Gambier’s picturesque Valley Lakes Precinct. Cars can reach a top speed of 200kmh with top drivers averaging a run time of 50 seconds.
Competing against the clock on timed runs, the drivers skills are tested to the extreme. Driving in pursuit of the split second advantage could be the difference between glory and defeat.
On Friday a ‘Classics & Clubmans only’ climb will be held for historic vehicles, plus a SEAC Member class.
Scrutineering for Saturday and Sunday will be held on Friday evening at the Valley Lakes Precinct where vehicles can be viewed at close quarters by the public, after they have been checked by our scrutineering teams. Saturday will commence with a familiarisation run in convoy under marshal control. Competition will commence after this run.
There are points at various stages of the course where the event can be viewed. Shuttle buses will be available so spectators can view the event from both the top and bottom of the hill.
While the 2017 Hillclimb saw spectator numbers well above event organisers expectations, attendance at the 2018 event is set to be even bigger due to many added attractions. New to the hillclimb this year will be big screen coverage of the event in corporate, public and crew areas of the Valley Lakes.
The big screens will again be utilised a Launch Party at the Rail Lands on 8th November. The Rail Lands precinct is a popular community gathering place and will showcase the Hillclimb, sponsors trade stalls and the vehicles to the wider public.
