Coming to Brooklands? Want to do the Hill Run?

Just an alert out to the people who may have missed this.

The deadline for the hill run is fast approaching (Mon 27th), so if you want to be in with a chance of doing it - get your name down on the official hill run thread

http://www.fiatforum.com/general-eve...un-thread.html

And if you don't know what the hill run is - check the above mentioned thread for all the details

I would enter with my 1.4 doblo but am worried about getting too far ahead and leaving the other competitors behind.

Think it would be unfair on others if I unleashed the 60 odd bhp my 1.2 Punto creates!

What is it about this hill?
It's only 1in4.

We live on that gradient and have never had any problems.

Cheers,
Mick.

It's more the history of it and the spectacle of seeing anything Italian go up it. From huge 30L straight 8 monsters to 3 wheeled scooters to high powered Abarth Grande Puntos etc.

No, just on a hill of the same gradient.

1in4 is a fact of life round here.

Great, I've been up it & steeper but it's all about the cars going up than the hill test. Also the Ferrari launching itself at the top 2 years ago.
