The Upcoming 2019 VSCCA Mt Equinox Hill Climb

Only a short post today because we are busy this week and next preparing the 1800s racing car to get it ready for the VSCCA Mt Equinox Hill Climb here in Southwestern Vermont.

The event will be held next weekend on August 1oth and 11th and if you will be or can be in southwestern Vermont it will be well worth your time to stop by for a visit. The Mountain is located twenty-five miles north of Bennington, Vermont, the home of Hemmings Motor News on scenic VT Route 7A and five miles south of Manchester. More information is available at the VSCCA Mount Equinox Hill Climb.

    • Thanks Doug…so you know what its all about then. The Equinox climb is a challenge, its 5.5 miles to the top, the average grade is 20%, there are 40 turns and 20 and them are tight bumpy switchbacks near the top most with an even steeper incline.

  1. Have fun! I’ve got great memories from the Hill Climb back in the 1970’s. Has the road been resurfaced since then? Hope to see you and some of the same cars & caretakers at Lime Rock on Labor day weekend. Bob

    • Hi Bob, Yes, two-thirds of the road has now been repaved, so only the top of it will be rough now. Might go to Lime Rock two watch the races on Monday, but will not be there all weekend.

      I will however be at the Fall Finale on September 27th & 28th and race both days. You ought to come up for it, there are no crowds, and its no charge to get in.

  2. Looks a bit more rigorous than the Goodwood Revival series! Nice to see some really rough and tumble competition with a variety of marques!
