Are you ready for the 60th Annual Knox Mountain Hill Climb? There is a great line up of drivers already registered for this great event.

The 60th annual Knox Mountain Hill Climb runs May 20 – 21st, 2017, Knox Mountain Park, Kelowna, BC.

Why not come on down and watch the event!? Gates open at 9am. Children under 15 when accompanied by an adult are free and we ask that you leave your pets at home. We also ask that you not wear or bring anything red. When the drivers are on the hill and they see red, they think that they have been flagged to stop. Tickets for this event can be purchased at the gate for $20 for one day or $25 for the weekend.

“It’s so great to see all the drivers who have participated year after year come back to the hill. There are also many new drivers each year. They always try to outdo their last years’ time up the hill. The races start Saturday at 9am (weather permitting) and we try to get 3 – 4 runs per heat in a day” said Bryan Fulton, Hill Climb chairperson.

“Because this is the 60th, there are many drivers who haven’t been in a few years coming back this year. We are also very fortunate that we have long term volunteers as well. It’s almost like a family reunion every May long weekend.”

If you are looking to view some exotic cars, August Luxury Motorcars will be a supporting sponsor of the Leavitt Machinery Knox Mountain Hill Climb. Cars will be on display at the bottom of the hill. You can watch the race from many locations throughout the hill or from the Bavarian Beer Gardens located at the base of the hill. (11am to 7pm)

“The excitement at the hill is infectious! The cars come to the line, and some in fewer than two minutes are at the top. We have radios throughout the hill to keep eyes on the car at all times”. Fulton said.

Leavitt Machinery Knox Mountain Hill Climb is always looking for volunteers.

If interested, please message them on their FB page or email volunteers@knoxmtnhillclimb.ca.
