Mount Alma Mile Hill Climb
- 14th January 2009, 1:15pm
As a precursor to the 2009 asp / Cut Price Adelaide Hills Tarmac Rally, the organising committee have announced the inaugural running of the asp Mount Alma Mile Hill Climb.
Designed as a â€œshake downâ€ opportunity for competitors of the 2009 asp / Cut Price Adelaide Hills Tarmac Rally, this event also offers anyone with a safe and road worthy car, a helmet, an interior mounted fire extinguisher plus the love of all things motoring, to have the chance to test their skills on a closed and controlled section of one of South Australiaâ€™s most invigorating stretches of road.
The asp Mount Alma Mile Hill Climb will give both experts and novices alike the opportunity to test their mettle on a challenging and difficult piece of tarmac and the headache of an ascent of some 19 degrees whilst keeping speeds in check. The location is an idyllic setting for spectators to view some spirited hill climb competition; itâ€™s close to Victor Harbour and a pleasant drive from the Adelaide CBD.
And as the competitors of the 2009 asp / Cut Price Adelaide Hills Tarmac Rally clear both their own and their vehicles cobwebs and the support crews hone their skills on the Mile Hill Climb, the organising committee and officials will use the opportunity to bed down and double check procedures and processes for the new electronic timing equipment that will be used for the big event on May 30 and 31. It also allows for the assessment of competitors times for seeding purposes for the 2009 asp / Cut Price Adelaide Hills Tarmac Rally.
The asp Mount Alma Mile Hill Climb offers an excellent opening for the support of Cure4CF by the 2009 asp / Cut Price Adelaide Hills Tarmac Rally. Michael Clements, Clerk of Course for both events, has confirmed that part proceeds from the Mile Hill Climb will go to Cure4CF. Michael has also offered spirited rides in official course vehicles for CF sufferers that are able to attend the event, with a schedule that will hopefully enable all comers to have a ride while still maintaining the management controls required for CF. Special thanks must go to the Ashby family, who have the land holdings surrounding the stretch of tarmac that will be used, as they have been extremely supportive of the event and are providing areas for use throughout the two days.
The inaugural asp Mount Alma Mile Hill Climb has been scheduled for April 18 & 19 (subject to CAMS and local council approval).
