I found a couple of good websites with my latest search but I'm sure there's more information out there on where to do hill climbs in Mass/NH/VT/ME.
This is the main site I found: http://www.hillclimb.org/ and they have links to a few local clubs that I'm going to check out but I was hoping somebody might be doing a climb sometime soon. I'd love to come watch and maybe even help where I can. My goal is to eventually run hill climbs, get my w2w license and do some open road racing.
Thanks!

I actually have that one on my google calendar to try to check out. I get out of work in Boston on Saturday at 2pm and I'm off Sunday so I was thinking check it out late Saturday and coming back out Sunday. Is it worth it to drive out Saturday after work or will I miss too much?

Got to www.vermontracing.com or www.sccv.org

Plenty of guys and gals hillclimbing their way out of the winter doldrums every summer!

I know the Pagoda hill climb in Reading, PA is coming up soon. That is usually in August. Weatherly Hill Climb was in June I believe and the Duryea is usually in May.

Mt. Equinox in Manchester Vt.

I go here once in a while just for a ride. I spanked a Ducati 900SS here once, did my very first crossed up wheelie.

They run pretty much the same both days. Usually four runs. Sunday is the day that counts if you are running for for prizes.

Nice event... I worked corners there a few years back. Good crowd.

Iceracer, I'm going to try to be up tomorrow. I was trying to post earlier but it's been a crazy week.

How was it? I got stuck at work Saturday for 16 hours and had to be back in Sunday night. With it being a 4 hour round trip for me it just wasn't worth it to try to make it for 2-4 hours. There's two autox's scheduled next weekend and I have to do a double that weekend so I'm getting screwed out of them, too. This is starting to become ridiculous... I need to get out and stretch my legs!

I had a fun weekend. Very nice people. We got only three runs on Sat. due to rain. Sun. only two,rain. The road in some spots is deteriorating, rough on the suspension. With 30 corners , learning the course is intimidating. I really needed more practice. The corners are all marked which helps.

Cool, I'm glad you have fun and came back in one piece. Hill racing is something that is in my immediate future, I just need to find a way to make it happen. I may have to wait until after the thunderstorm season. I work for an electric utility so the weather has a direct impact on how much I work.
