Default Hill Climb events?

I've been wanting to try this forever and cannot find any websites. Can anybody steer me in the right direction? I am in California if that helps too.

Thanks in advance!

New England is probably not much help if he's in Calif. But I might as well add PA, www.pahillclimb.org

Thanks guys I just found those today.

What is required for hill climb events? I've seen bone stock cars all the way up to full cages and slicks. I am under the impression then it is just like autocross with different classes and everything? I love to race, but autocross kind of bores me as it is over in less than a minute, and road racing is expensive.

Check your local regulations, but I think PA hillclimbs require a minimum of a roll bar and full driver safety equipment, even in stock'ish vehicles. The consequences of an "off" are far different than autox.

Many hillclimb runs are over in 1-2 minutes. And you get 3-6-10 runs a weekend depending on how many incidents there are. You want seat time, try performance rally, but it can be more expensive than road racing depending on how you do it.

A little closer to home for you...

But I'll warn you. If you think road racing is expensive, you'll **** over what a lot of people spend in a hill climb season.

You want to race for the cheapest amount possible? Get a kart, end of story.

That's quick. The shortest I've seen are roughly 3 minutes. And of course there's always the king of all hillclimbs at roughly 10 minutes.
