The Historic Noosa Hill Climb, affectionately known as 'The Hill', had
its inaugural run in 1998 and has just recently celebrated its 11th
Anniversary. 'The Hill' is a combined event run by the Noosa each Classic Car Club and the Historic Racing Car Club (Qld).
Over these 12 years The Hill has developed into a first class event with many well known racing personalities from across Australia as well as local Queensland racing identities all vying to be the fastest on the day.
The Hill is seductively attractive to drivers. Fourteen corners in lightning succession are a few too many for easy recollection -- and they all have their tricks. There is a good hot mix surface -- thanks to the support of Noosa Council, plus the spice of steep banks on one side, (offering an easy route to inversion) and of awesome drop-offs on the other.
With Split Second Timing and automated traffic light starting systems, cars get away at intervals of less than 30 seconds and gives The Hill climb participants the potential to achieve 6 runs per day. There are usually 3 cars climbing The Hill simultaneously -- and the commentator can pass on the information to the public as it happens.
The Hill also provides excellent viewing for spectators too -- unlike many sprint venues, and the ambience of the pits is irresistible. Food and coffee vendors are available at a number of sites.
The Hill has won the respect of the traditional landowners and of the Noosa Parks & Wild Life Services and Environmental Protection Agency, who recognising the care that our spectators show for the living forest, continue to allow public access to the spectator areas via the walking track.
