SPRINT/HILLCLIMB MG ZR RACER
AN INTRODUCTION TO HILLCLIMBING & SPRINTING
Speed Events is the name given to the motor sports of Speed Hillclimbing and Sprinting. Speed Hillclimbing (usually referred to simply as Hillclimbing) is the sport of racing a car from a standing start along ribbon of tarmac to a finish point which is higher than the start - hence 'hillclimb'. Sprinting is similar to Hillclimbing, with many competitors doing both, but takes place of flat(ter) and generally longer tarmac courses.
The Speed Event courses in use today in the UK range from well known race tracks such as Cadwell Park, Brands Hatch and Mallory Park and historic permanent hillclimbs (where unlike circuits, the start and finish don't join up!) such as Shelsley Walsh and Prescott. In fact there are more venues for Hillclimbs and Sprints in the country than for any other form of motor sport.
