We join the events of the New England Hillclimb Association and started our first event at Okemo in 2014.
The goal is to go as fast as possible up a closed road. The car needs to be equipped with a fire extinguisher and drivers must wear helmet, neck brace and long sleeve/pants. If you are going faster than a determined time (called the breakout time), you need to have a fully caged car, firesuit, SFI rated shoes/gloves and a neck restraint system.
All the rules and regulations are available on the hillclimb.org website.
Starting in 2016, an official rally class has been added for rally logbooked cars. Unlike other classes where only the fastest time counts, all runs are counted as stages in the rally class and they are cumulative. We will be running the 2016 season in the rally class!
Here is a video from our first event:

Volunteer at a hillclimb
One of the best ways to discover how a hillclimb works and see the action up close is to volunteer at a hillclimb. You can also get a ride in a race car during the fam run!
Pace notes for rally class teams
Since 2016, the rally class has been officially added to the NEHA rules. Attached to this page are pace notes that can be used as is or as a support to write your own pace notes.
The Jemba pace note system is described here: http://www.jemba.se/notesUSA.htm
