2019 QLD HILLCLIMB CHAMPIONSHIPS, 1-2 June, 2019
 

With the rain which was forecast for Sunday, 2 June not eventuating, the weather allowed for a day of fierce and keen competition with Dean Amos (from NSW) becoming the Qld Hillclimb Champion for 2019 with a sizzling time of 35.95s from second placed Dean Tighe of QLD (36.24) and Brett Hayward of VIC (36.62), a time he set on his second run and most likely would have bettered except for his accident on the way to the finish line on the third run.

 

Three existing records were broken - by Gary Ford, Philip Dalton and Ferris Lee - while records were established in three historic classes by Rod Johns,  Alan Telfer and Michael Gehde setting times for competitors in their classes  to try to better next year.

 

The day was a day of many highs and unfortunately two lows when top competitors, Brett Hayward and Ed McCane each damaged their cars - Brett on the way to the finish line and Ed on the exit from the second loop.

 

A significant high spot of the day was the welcoming of a new member, the 26th, to the Under 40s Club when Brett Bull did a 39.85 time in his Van Diemen RF03K.
