Schedule Change – Observatory Cancelled/Delayed

18 Jul

Due to circumstances beyond our control, next weekend’s Observatory Hill-Climb has been cancelled. A new transformer is being installed on the mountain that weekend, and we were unable to coordinate an alternate date. Communication with management has been reestablished, after years off the schedule, and the event will return, just not right now.

Stay tuned, perhaps we will be able to swing something later in the summer, or in the fall as a one-off pain cave event.

In the meantime, for those pain-seekers, we will see you tonight at Newton Heights!!

Curious just how fast your lap chasing back from a flat was? Wondering how you’d stack up in the next fastest field? Well, with the advent of VCL timing chips, you can pour over all those details post-race.

That’s right, we’re trying out some timing chip tech at these early-season races, hoping to integrate electronic timing into our already excellent series. Welcome to the 2000s.

Check out all the race details HERE.
Please bring signed WAIVER to the first race!! And, this season Race Numbers include a timing chip – they will be $8, and last you the whole season. Please bring exact change if possible. Thanks.
