Default Hillclimbs/Solo I/Time Trials?

Anyone do any hillclimbs/solo 1's/time trials? We started tearing into my brother's '95 Talon and we were just going to build it into a track day/fun car, but I'm thinking it might be fun for those kind of events. How are they usually structured? We've done a good bit of club/pro rallying in the past, how do they compare to rallys? How much seat time do you get? How much do they usually cost? Any other advice?

You are the one that didn't stop by to get it. It is at my house in Erie now. BTW, you need to stop by and check out what we are doing to my brothers talon. Here are a couple of shots from last weekend. The engine is coming out tomorrow for its trip to rebuild land. It should be coming back as a 2.4 liter.


Started as:




Then we took all this out:

I've run or been involved with hillclimbing in PA for 33 years. Very very little seat time. Not as expensive as rallying (cheaper entry fees, usually don't crash often, don't blow tires or bend wheels) but still very little seat time. Outside of Mt Equinox and Pikes Peak, we have one of the better hillcimbs here in Reading, the Duryea hillclimb. It's 2.2 miles long. On the average hillclimb weekend you'll get 4-6 runs over 2 days depending on weather and whether or not there's a major accident. At approximately 3 minutes per run that's a maximum or 18 minutes seat time I wouldn't build a car specifically intending to do only Hillclimb/Solo 1. Even as close as Duryea is to my house (3 miles) I've only chosen the run my rally car there once in 4 years (this year I would have had it not been for the crash in Maine 3 weeks earlier).

Thanks for the great info. You're right that it is hard to beat rallying for seat time/$ and grin factor. We aren't really building the car specifically for hillclimbing. It is mainly a fun car for track days and also as a testbed for some new parts we are working on. We don't want to go road racing, but we want to be able to use it for some competition and I've always liked the time trial/hillclimb stuff.
