Mt Cootha Classic

This is a hillclimb held by the historic racing car club, and the first time the event has been held since 1932.

The location is within spitting distance of the CBD - makes a nice backdrop. Roughly 200 cars entered, with several hundred being turned away due to time constraints (event was held over the weekend). Some of them were run in the event the last time it was held..

i couldn't be everywhere at once so i missed out on some interesting cars, maybe a larger UCP presence next year is in order

next year i'll probably just spectate, it was fun to do it this year but quite a long time between runs due to the amount of competitors.

unfortunately most of my shots on the first day were marred by a smudge on the lens, and then on the second day i decided to get clever with the camera settings...

first batch of shots with an interesting fiat, somke datsuns and jim richard's in his GT2 - second shot he has the mayor on board haha

they had some hilarious sprintcars - run on methanol, have to be pushed to start, short wheelbase, 1 gear, built to go sideways..steer with the throttle.
also a bolwell nagari (wish the barriers were lower there )

yeah, i'd reccomend it. i found a spot where you're 2-3 metres from the cars as they come down the hill, and it's just over a weekend.
i dunno about eastern creek just yet will let you know closer

Datsun comes a cropper! only minor damage to the panel thankfully.

a couple of hillclimb specials - the black one is a rotary powered, there is a similar white one with a supercharged rotary. the tires on these are ridiculously soft - like foam, can sink a finger two joints into them it seems like.

and also.. one of the most ludicrous cars of the day. a suzki mighty boy with a 6.0L V8.

edit2: it's a Rochdale Olympic

i followed the track on the other side, looking down on to it.
you can see on one spot i was very close,~2-3 metres from the cars. had to fiddle with the camera to get them on film, but stuffed up the settings i think..
