Saturday, September 16, 2017

The race was run from 1964 to 1980 and is back to stay! The course for this year has been increased to about 3/4 mile with 8 turns. All this is 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 fourth 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 competition classes as follows:

  • 2WD <2.55 liter displacement
  • 2WD >2.55 liter displacement
  • AWD <2.55 liter displacement
  • AWD >2.55 liter displacement
  • Vintage (>30 years old production)
  • Open Wheel
