2016 Empire Hill Climb
sanctioned by Detroit Region, SCCA
Sanction # 16-TTHC-4317-S
Saturday, September 24, 2016
The race was run from 1964 to 1980 and is back to stay! The course is a short but challenging .5 miles and 8 turns, just a short walk from the shores of Lake Michigan.
During its original running some of the best cars of their time made their way up the hill such as Austin Healey’s, Jaguar E-Type’s, AMC Gremlin’s, Formula Ford and V’s, Triumph’s, Corvette’s, Porsche’s and even a Ferrari or two.
At the first revival the HillClimb saw an entry list ranging from a Formula Ford to a Modified Circle Track car - which actually won! This is the third year of its revival and looks to be bigger and better.
The hillside offers fantastic spectating as the cars wind their way up the hill spectators can sit nearly above the race cars – close, but safe from the action.
Parc Expose will be in downtown Empire letting spectators get up close and personal with the race cars before they make their way up the hill.
We look forward to many years of vintage cars, modified's, rally cars, sports cars, open wheel cars, you name it, all making their way up the hill.
There will be six total competition classes as follows:
- 2WD <2.55 liter displacement
- 2WD >2.55 liter displacement
- AWD <2.55 liter displacement
- AWD >2.55 liter displacement
