Our planning started last year already. When the new committee team met for the first time in November, we discussed which events we'd love to be able to do for 2018. The HillClimb, was one of them, due to its rich history, and that it was different to a lot of events out there. Well, we did it! Drivers from all parts of JHB (and further away) congregated on an ICY (It was SO cold) stretch of road in Krugersdorp on Sunday morning to take on the Hill! The selection of cars ranged from our club rides, to ridiculous Hillclimb monsters! We were so overwhelmed with the response to our club event! An event like this, wouldn't be possible without some assistance, and I'd like to take the opportunity to thank the following people... Maverick Generators, and owner Gerardo Cammarata for the sponsorship and help in the weeks leading up to the event. Delarey Racing Developments, and owner Wikus Dippenaar, for the absolutely gorgeous trophies, and the help, and for listening to me whine in the weeks before. Kyalami Marshals, who stood with us from start to finish, Dave and his team need a huge thank you, they are the unsung heroes! Our food vendors, The Urban Cafe and Tasneems for keeping us fed and quenched our thirsts, and the steaming hot coffees in the freezing cold temperatures. My committee team, and Natalie & Caytlin, for making sure the event ran smoothly, for sorting the registrations, and doing the timing all day! The various media crews, and our own Dylan Shaw Photography, for the awesome event coverage! And to our club members and spectators who spent the day with us! I am sure I've left a few people out, but thank you! Finally, the competitors, who put it all on the line, and by all accounts, had a great day out with the Club, thank you for your support! There isn't much left to say, other than let you know who we crowned, King of the Hill. Well, it was none other than one of our sponsors, Gerardo, who set a BLISTERING time of 43.16s, smashing Deon's long standing record of 45.7s set a few years back! Well done!
Enjoy the images by our club photographer, Dylan! Be absolutely sure, this event will be back next year!
