Sunday 3rd June 2018 at 10:00am at Mount Bingham
At 10am on Sunday, 3rd June, we move to Mount Bingham for the next round of our hill climb. Spectators are able to watch the action from the nearby swings or from the foot of the glacis. The hill climb starts by the States flats where there is a long and flat right hand bend, followed by a short left and then a straight, before the hairpin under the rock face.
The hairpin is the tightest possible and is very challenging for both cars and bikes. Judging the braking distance on the fast approach is crucial, as it is very easy to lockup or overshoot! A variety of techniques are used to get round the hairpin and a good trials bike is a definite advantage!
After the hairpin, it is a case of power on and climb up through a sharp right hander onto a steep incline, past the straw bales and a sharp left across the junction and up the “ramp” to Fort Regent and the finish line.
Eligibility is based on manufactured date – for cars, they must be manufactured before 1979 and for motorcycles, before 1981. At the end of the morning hill climb, competitors will return to the Peoples Park to participate in the show and active arena.
