SUNDAY, OCTOBER 3, 2021

Maryhill Loops Hill Climb | 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Vintage sports cars from the 1930s to 1960s race singly in a three-mile timed climb up the historic Maryhill Loops Road. The most historic event on the Pacific Northwest motor racing calendar is this recreation of the Maryhill Hillclimb. First held in 1955, it has seen top international drivers and cars as diverse as Ferraris, vintage Bentleys, Model-T racers, and formula B cars race up its slopes. The Hillclimb now sees a diverse group of cars, motorcycles, and karts even. It’s a unique experience for any motorsports enthusiast, as very few hillclimb events are still available anywhere in the world. Driving this large portion of the original 1955 course at speed is a dizzying ascension not for the faint of heart, with long drop-offs just a few feet away all the way to the top. Free for spectators viewing the race from the Highway 97 Overlook and from designated viewpoints along the route. Organized by the Maryhill Loops Vintage Hill Climb Association; only their approved cars and drivers will be competing. This program is assisted by members of the Tri-Cities Strictly British Motor Club; Yakima Valley Sports Car Club and Society of Vintage Racing Enthusiasts.
