Chasing the Dragon Hillclimb
June 11th - 12th In Robbinsville, NC
Event registration is now closed!
Here’s your chance to really drive that car like you’ve always wanted or to try that track car out on the street! Use both lanes of a closed road that gains 1200 feet of elevation over its 2.2 mile course, through tight turns and twists… and some of the most beautiful mountain scenery on the planet! Test your skill, your car and your courage and make some great friends in the process!
This is a family friendly event with several viewing areas along the course, food and souvenir vendors and free shuttle buses to haul spectators up and down the mountain! You can drive, volunteer or spectate! Volunteers get a free room for the weekend and it’s always free to come watch!
Hillclimbs are the fourth and top level of the Time Trials program. There are no safety fences or safe run-offs, so full safety gear is mandatory as it’s just you, your car and a mountain road. And, like all time trial events, the fastest time wins!
The hillclimb site offers grass paddocks along the road side leading to the course. Most areas are wide enough to accommodate an enclosed car trailer and there is a large, secure area for open trailer storage. You don’t have to worry about leaving your equipment on the hill, the event site is guarded at night by the Graham County Sheriff’s Department.
