Geocache Description:


Hill climbing is the motor sport discipline for the thinking driver, the challenge of a climb lies in each driver's battle against the clock as they attempt to cover the course in the shortest possible time. The ultimate achievement at each event is to establish the Fastest Time of the Day. The FTD is for a single run, not an average of all runs completed. Cars are timed to the nearest one-hundredth of a second, which may seem like a tiny amount, but is one which often decides the winner.

In 1935 the Rob Roy Hill climb became the first dedicated Hill climb in Australia and was the very grass roots of motor sport in this country. Since then, hill climbs have emerged all over the country. Some of the more familiar ones are:

  • Mt Panorama, Bathurst  NSW
  • King Edward Park, Newcastle  NSW
  • Fairbairn Park  ACT
  • Templestowe  VIC
  • Arthur’s Seat  VIC
  • Gippsland Park, Morwell  VIC
  • Collingrove  SA
  • Jacks Hill  WA
  • Mt Ommanney  WA
  • Mt Cotton  QLD
  • Noosa  QLD
And of course our own Huntley Hill climb. This public road occasionally gets closed off and transformed into a tight twisting, steep sided wild hill climb. The race days are managed by the WSCC. Check out the clubs website for upcoming race days and more info on this sport.

The cache itself is a small clip-lock container located well off the racing line. You might say the cache has close association with Dick Johnson. Be sure to replace the cache exactly as you found it, trade fairly and beware of muggles or stray racing cars.
