We like hillclimbs.  It’s a very straightforward form of motorsport- start at this point, finish at that one, and experience a change in altitude somewhere in between.  We also like that recently, Europeans have been repurposing ex-BTCC, DTM and other spec-series cars for the discipline, meaning that the cars we’ve loved in years past now […] More…
