Tail of the Dragon Hillclimb - June 11-12

Postby AAONMS » Wed May 04, 2011 5:05 am

INTRODUCING...
The Tail of the Dragon Hillclimb – Robbinsville, NC - June 11-12, 2011
• 2.2 Miles long course at the base of the Tail of the Dragon with over 1000 feet of elevation
• a great mix of blind sweepers and straights in some of North Carolina’s most beautiful forests
• waterfalls next to start line and a scenic overlook deck at top
• “formula car” friendly but grippy asphalt with no potholes or uneven surfaces
• guard rails and earth walls from start to finish
• likely the largest group of spectators at a hillclimb in years!

Drivers – Registration will open soon. Records available but only one per class
Course workers – Free accommodations and food. Sign up soon!
Spectators – welcome at no charge
More information to follow at www.ccrscca.com

Sounds like this will be an interesting event.
I don’t have a Hillclimb License so I won’t be an Entrant, but plan to be there as a course worker.

A video of the course: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2zdGQ1KdQOU


From the Central Carolinas Region, SCCA, Site (http://www.ccrscca.com/):
Go to http://www.sedivtt.com and take a look at the tab Time Trial Info. There are links to all the TT rules for SEDIV and SCCA.

To get your full TT license you can either do 2 flat track events with a novice permit and have the chief instructor sign the form, then send your permit to SCCA along with the Physical examination forms with a check for the license, or you can do a Time Trial school , get signed off by the Chief Instructor or Chief Steward and send your form into SCCA along with the Physical examination forms from your Doctor along with payment for the license and you will be a licensed Timed Trialer.

Yes, but was on the bike to make parking easier. I hope that becomes a yearly event. Tons of fun to watch
