    NV: Virginia City Hill Climb

    Anyone who is in the Reno Nevada/ Lake Tahoe area or maybe even possibly the Sacramento area should make the trip up the Virginia City hill climb. Lots of sharp and curvy turns all the way to the top and when you get there you can stop in Virginia City one of the oldest mining towns in america during the gold rush. Lots of shops and resturants and when your done you can make the trip back down. They also have an actual Virginia City Hill Climb event once a year where exotics like porche's, ferrari's, and lambo's race up the hill for times

    Hillclimbs used to be pretty open races, with minimum equipment and safety gear. Basically anyone could compete. But over the years, it has tightened up a lot, and now is part of SCCA Solo I (as opposed to Solo II, which is autocross.) It requires a lot of specialty car prep, mostly safety related, and I think a license. Not quite as easy as autocross any more.

    I used to watch a hill climb in Ohio called Corkscrew Hill, and then we'd go back out the next day (while the roads were still swept clear) and run the course. We'd put someone at the top with a walkie-talkie let us know if a car was coming down. Not very safe, but lots of fun. Still, my best time in a '75 Scirocco was about twice as long as the winner in the class I'd have been in!
