Hill climb draws drivers from all over

Maffra and District Car Club recently held round five of the Boisdale Hillclimb Series with close to a full field of 120 competitors.

Entrants came from not only Gippsland but from across the state, as this race meeting was also a round of the Victorian Championship Series.

With a variety of cars from standard road vehicles to purpose built race cars and buggies, all enjoyed a great day’s racing with most competitors getting six runs in for the afternoon and into the evening.

Fastest car on track was once again Kerran Pridmore in his Subaru with a lightning quick time of 56.55 seconds.

It was also great to see a large field of Junior drivers competing and often rivalling their senior counterparts, with Cody Healy being the fastest in this class with a time of 64.94 seconds.

Round six of the Boisdale Hillclimb Series will also be a Twilight and Long Track event to be held this Saturday.

Racing will commence at 1.00pm with free entry to all spectators and a kiosk will provide refreshments throughout the meeting.

A playground will keep the kids amused when watching all the action on the gravel race track.
