Saturday 1st June 2019 at Westmount Hillclimb starts at 10:00am.
The Westmount hill climb is conveniently situated alongside the showground at the Peoples Park, affording people attending the show a fantastic opportunity to view the start and also a great vantage point half-way up the hill where the road twists and turns, past the bowling green.
The hill itself is approximately 640m long and provides some exhilarating challenges for both drivers and riders.
Not too far from the start is a left hander, which can be tricky due to the adverse camber, causing some breaking. This is followed by a lovely little flick to the right and then using the full width of the road, a long sweep past the bowling green and into a very tight right hander, which is the dominant feature of the hill.
Driving line and braking are crucial at this point. Come in too close and the gradient steepens dramatically. It is generally thought to keep out a little way before powering through the transitional curve, leading to a long straight climb and a very fast finish.
The event starts at 10am on Saturday morning the 1st June with practice runs and continues throughout the afternoon.
