2021 SCCA Pine Mountain HillClimb by Grassroots Motorsports

The inaugural SCCA Pine Mountain HillClimb by Grassroots Motorsports takes place at the Pine Mountain State Resort Park in Pineville, Kentucky, May 1-2.

Hosted in conjunction with the SCCA’s East Tennessee Region, Blue Ridge Region and Central Carolinas Region, the Pine Mountain HillClimb challenges participants with a 2-mile-long course with 10 turns and 650 feet of elevation gain.

Find the SCCA HillClimb safety rules here, while the SCCA provides the following explanation regarding the event basics:

“SCCA HillClimbs take place on a section of mountain road that has been closed to commuter traffic. Competitors take turns seeing who can complete the course the fastest. Unlike a road course, which may have multiple levels of barriers, or an autocross where rubber cones are usually the biggest risk, a HillClimb course is lined with trees and rocks. Getting to the top unscathed is a mix of bravery and discretion. HillClimb cars need roll bars and racing harnesses at a minimum, and drivers need approved flame-retardant racing suits and other safety gear.”

Pine Mountain State Resort Park, just 2 miles from Pineville, Kentucky, also has a resort on the property that offers guest lodging and cabins as well as a full restaurant and catering service.

The entry fee is $325 until April 12 and $400 thereafter. If you aren't a current member of the SCCA, a weekend membership can be purchased for an additional $25; registration for non-members opens on March 31. Click here to register.

Onsite lodging at the Pine Mountain State Resort Park can be had for $300-$800, though availability is limited.
