2019 Legend of The Lakes Hill Climb

A HUGE “Thank you” to Andrew, VK5KET Representative for SERG for the Hill Climb Event, for another well organised and run event from SERG Members.

Well what a weekend three days Friday Saturday and Sunday of racing and another well done job by SERG members assisting SEAC (South East Automobile Club) in this years event. 140 approximately competing competitor’s this year in very ordinary weather conditions.

Prior to the race day there is a lot of work involved setting up leading up to this event from dedicated Serg members, about 5 days in getting cables out and testing many things from red lights to cameras. Serg has been involved with this event since it started 14 years ago and our primary role is providing communication along the course back to race control. The other service that the club provides is live video footage to various large monitors located around the course for the spectators.

The course is 1.45 kilometers of up hill and winding bends and speed reached of up to on some sections of 180 kilometers Hour plus.

To see what is it like to run up the hill well then take a ride with these drivers to experience the thrill.
