CCR July Hillclimb – Cancelled
Central Carolinas Region had requested a date to be kept open for a possible hillclimb for July. There were two possible sites but unfortunately, neither one was deemed solid enough to hold a July Hillclimb event this year.
Our Time Trial officials and drivers are continuing to look for hillclimb sites here in the Southeast Division. Your help in finding sites is greatly appreciated. Please contact Ted Theodore with possible sites and he can arrange a time to come and review . Here are a few of the items to look for :
General : Location : road surface condition, hazards, through traffic, spectator areas, paddock area, restaurants / hotels for workers/drivers/spectators.
Course : Water / Trees / Boulder / Walls / Wildlife / Spur Roads / Residents / Edges of road / Run Off areas / number of high speed areas
Operation : Radio Communications accessible / Staging areas / Cool down areas / Shuttle bus / Course worker line of sight / Spectator Parking areas
Community : Good for local economy / Sound Ordinances / Site Owner / Wildlife / Camping
If you find a possible site, don’t hesitate to pass it on for considerations. MANY of the potential problems can be overcome with “work arounds” and safety precautions.
We will continue to look for new sites for 2015.
