2021 Qld Hillclimb Championships 29/30 May, 2021
What a great weekend was the Queensland Hillclimb Championships! Large crowds lapped up the fantastic weather and heated competition. The weekend proved to be highly successful, with a good entry list, a huge and enthusiastic crowd of spectators and some great competition on track which included one new member joining the Under 40 second Club plus some class records tumbling.
The good attendance of competitors at the presentation of trophies was another element adding to the success of the weekend.
Four new open records were broken (Ross Mackay - Escort in Sports Sedans; Roy Davis - Triumph GT6 in Historic and Jason McGarry - Caterham R300 in Production Sports). Also a new record established by Alan Telfer in the Brabham BT 36-2 in Historic Group P.
We had a number of photographers on site and on every corner they captured the action.
Here is what Peter Buchanan captured at the Start Line. There is sound too.
