HILLCLIMB

Hill Climb is a speed event, where one car and driver runs over a defined uphill winding course, from a standing start, against the clock. In competition, cars are classified into categories so as to have cars of like potential performance competing against each other. However, the real contest is the individual one where each driver tries on each run to improve their individual time i.e., the hill and the clock vs the car and the driver. Competitors claim hill climbing is the best fun you can have sitting down with a seat belt on!

Each year there is the four round Collingrove Challenge Trophy, the four round Winter Cup series, two Come & Try days for newcomers and the South Australian Hillclimb Championship. We also host the Australian Hillclimb Championship when the rotation is allocated to South Australia.

In October, we get a blast from the past when the vintage cars and their drivers venture up the hill for Barossa Vintage Collingrove, in an amazing spectacle of automobiles from our past.

2020 saw us introduce an additonal Season Finale Event which we will continue to run in 2022.

Collingrove Hillclimb

The Sporting Car Club owns and operates the Collingrove Hillclimb track in the Barossa Valley. It is situated approximately 7km south of Angaston, off the Angaston to Mt Pleasant Rd. It has been in operation since the early 1950’s and has seen some of Australia’s most famous hillclimb vehicles and competitors run its testing course.

The track itself is 750 metres of challenging asphalt, climbing nearly 70 metres from the start line to the finish. The club has recently upgraded the return road with an asphalt surface. For spectators the track offers numerous vantage points and picnic areas while the new Clubrooms and deck provide an elevated vantage point of the start line!

Eligibility

Any sort of car may run in competition as long as it passes a safety check – so your daily driver is OK. Some categories have more defined requirements – though to start with, an ordinary car will do. If you haven’t competed before and would just like to have a go, enter for a Come & Try event – a low cost and simple way to experience your first hillclimb.
