Round 2 TSA-SRA Mt Cotton Hillclimb done and dusted

April 02, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

Another great Sunday of competition at Mt Cotton. A big field of entrants like round 1, with a few new cars, a couple of quick Escorts I hadn't seen before.

The track was in great condition and there were some very quick times, with a few class records broken. Warwick Hutchinson took out fastest time of the day in his lightning quick open wheeler. It's an amazing car, when he gets off the throttle it has a massive backfire that you can feel through your whole body. Frightens the hell out of you the first few times it happens.

As well as a day of very quick times it was also a day of big accidents. Sunday saw two huge offs. The first being Pierz Harrex in his super quick BMW. He was on a very fast lap and locked everything up coming into the hairpin and it's the only car I have seen go into and over the nuts. Ended up 2m in the air but was pulled up very quickly by the nuts and the catch fence. The other big crash was Barry Smith in his V8 Special. He just went straight into the tyre barrier at the 2nd loop at a fair speed. The car sustained a lot of damage but Barry got out of the car and appeared ok.

The photos are all done now and uploaded to my galleries  

Here are a couple from the day
