It has been a tough year for motorsport fans and everyone else with the COVID-19 pandemic calling all sport to a stop earlier in the year.
With the ease of restrictions underway, motorsport is set to make a comeback all around the world and this includes Hillclimb racing at Mount Cotton in Queensland South-East.
While the regular series has been abandoned, Hillclimb events at Mount Cotton will restart July 25/26.
At this stage, these events are limited in numbers to comply with Government Regulations and Motorsport Australia Guidelines.
While details are constantly being looked at as the restrictions continue to change, the MG Car Club of Queensland is working to get wheels turning on track.
To help competitors blow out the cobwebs of race cars that have been sitting for a few months, and to give those who have been busy working on improvements, a test and tune will be first up.
This will be followed by an interclub challenge round, test and tunes, the Queensland Hillclimb Championship and all going to plan the 76th Australian Hillclimb Championship.
“As you would be well aware all of the above (referring to dates posted) is subject to the current and future situation(s) regarding gatherings and social distancing in relation to the COVID-19 pandemic”, the club stated on their Facebook page.
“The MG Car Club of Qld. Inc. is determined to do everything that can be done to ensure that the events listed happen. Things may have to change or be abandoned etc. if the situation regarding COVID-19 do not continue to improve.”
The Queensland Hillclimb Championship at Mount Cotton is proposed for the long weekend of August 14-16 while the Australian Hillclimb Championship is still on schedule for November 5-8.
The club will continue to provide you with updates as to the above. See further posts by the MG Car Club of Qld for information on these individual events.
