2017 Slaying the Dragon Hill Climb

October 6 - 8, 2017 | Tail of the Dragon - Robbinsville, NC

Historians believe that some of the first automotive speed contests were hill climbs. The pursuit is simple: drive race cars up a hill against the clock – the fastest time wins.

SVRA has added to its 2017 schedule the Slaying the Dragon Hill Climb to enjoy these racing traditions. The SVRA invites drivers in prepared race cars to mark their time up a 2 mile mountain road. The exact course has yet to be defined but will be a portion of Joyce Kilmer Park’s 4.2-mile Maple Gap Road located in the area of Robbinsville, North Carolina. Maple Gap has a long history of safe, successful sports car hill climb competitions.

If it has been a dream to pilot your race car up a tree-lined public road, this is your opportunity to do so. All race cars classes are invited.

On Saturday, after the hill runs finish, there will be a dinner for participants and guests. Enjoy the warm days, fall foliage, and adventure of this unique hill climb event. The Slaying the Dragon Hill Climb weekend adds to SVRA’s festival brand reputation for motorsports events.

Participants are not required to hold a competition license for this event.  The SCCA Time Trial Solo License will be valid.
