Despite the easing of restrictions resulting from the Covid19 pandemic a significant number of planned Championship rounds have either been postponed or cancelled.
In addition, some of the venues are struggling to re-open and so finding replacements for the postponed events will be difficult, if not impossible.
We have held off on making a decision about what to do for the remainder of the season until it was clear what Motorsport UK’s decision would be on allowing events to run and which events could actually run. In between times we have had representation from competitors making their views known.
Taking all factors into account, the organisers have taken the decision that the Petro-Canada Lubricants Porsche Club National Hillclimb Championship will not run in 2020.
We apologise for any disappointment or inconvenience caused by this decision, but it would not be possible to run a championship with a suitable quantity of events.
Under normal circumstances the Petro-Canada Lubricants Porsche Club National Hillclimb Championship with Pirelli is, as the name suggests, a championship focused just on specialised hillclimb events. The championship is invited to be part of high-profile hillclimb meetings, but can still accommodate absolute novices, even with standard road cars.
Divided into two classes the Championship is largely intended for purpose built Hillclimb cars. Class 1 is for the most powerful, or more modified cars and slick tyres are permitted, while Class 2 is intended for production type cars using road legal tyres.
Now in its fourth year, the championship sports a strong sense of camaraderie as well as a healthy dose of competitive rivalry.
