This past Sunday, Sir Blevins and I headed to the Chasing The Dragon hill climb held by the SCCA. Ive watched a ton of hill climb racing on Youtube, but this was the first time Ive seen it in person.
There were only two disappointments to this event. One, I really wish it was held on the Tail Of The Dragon; I think we all wish that. Two, spectators weren’t allowed on course due to there not being a safe place to spectate from. No big deal though. Safety first. It was still enjoyable and we met a lot of cool people.
ie Vicky Lanning

She has been hillclimbing for a number of years now, as has her husband, Steve. Also, Steve is the Regional Executive for the region that put on this event, as well as being a crew member on the Rolex Series #69 Speedsource Rx8. Legit.
They put up a few in-car videos from the hill climb. Here is one of them:
I took some vids from the start box with my phone:
All in all… good times. Im looking forward to the next one. Who knows, perhaps I’ll drive in it.
