Hill Climbs are one of the most popular VSCC disciplines; as at sprint events, competitors are timed on an ascending course, ranging from 800 to 1600 yards in length, with events again sub-divided into capacity classes. There are named trophies attributed for ‘Fastest Time of Day’ at some VSCC hill climbs, whilst other additional named awards are presented for other capacity, marque and car age-based criteria; details are given in individual trophy descriptions below. These trophies are awarded at events or at the Club’s AGM.
