Posted: June 7, 2017 7:10 AM

The Imokilly Motor Club are delighted to bring the Irish Hill Climb Championship to one of the oldest and best hills for motorsport in the country The SWEEP, the course has been used for decades for sprints and hill climbs many of last year’s competitors describing the hill as iconic, keep next weekend free for Rounds 5 & 6 of the National Championship on 10th & 11th June. (IMC Hillclimb Weekend)

After running a successful two day Championship event last year . Dick O’ Brien is back as Clerk Of the Course and the club is delighted to say that last year’s Sponsors Pat & Jason Ryan Car Sales Youghal are back on board for this event as main sponsor. Dick O’Brien said I am delighted to welcome the Naylor Engineering Hillclimb Championship 2017 competitors to our event coupled with the entries of cars from the local area and our own club members I am sure this will be a memorable event.

The big competition should be between the experienced Galway man, and reigning champion Joe Courtney in his Reynard 913, Joe won our hillclimb in 2015 and returns to a hill he really likes The Sweep, his main competition is expected to come from young Clare driver Rob Dwane Robs family and friends spent last year building the car an OMS 25 powered by a 1400cc Suzuki Hayabusa engine. Rob has a 1st followed by 2 seconds and a dnf, while Joe has a 2nd and 3 wins should either fail there are a host of hill climb regulars waiting to pick up the pieces.

Dick appealed to all attending the event to drive with caution and park in a safe place and not to park anywhere to cause the event problems on the N25 outside Dungarvan.

The event is well worth a look at to see the saloons and the rally cars at full tilt going sideways is always exciting and mix that with the sheer speed of the single seater hill climb cars that can reach incredible speeds up the hill.

The event on The Sweep is 2.2km and the clubs intention is to give 3 timed runs per day

Entry fee is One Day Entry fee is One Day €140.00 Both Days €245.00.

Who will make a clean Sweep of it?
