Knox Mountain Hill Climb Is Taking Place This Weekend. Great weather to get outside and enjoy the races & help out a great cause. Here's the schedule:
Turn 1 - The first switchback, comes in off a rise in the slope, often misjudged carrying in a bit much speed.
Turn 2 - The steepest part of the hill, but narrow and dark shade of the trees.
Turn 3 - Second switchback, again very steep especially if your line is too close to the traditional apex. Secret is to go wide.
Turn 4 - For many the scariest turn, with a steep dropoff on the right. Be bold.
Turn 5 - Frequently mis-judged as drivers turn away from open slopes to the inside part of the course. Be cautious of drifting too wide.
Turn 6 - High speed turn, flat out for many, unless your car is very quick.
Turn 7 - Another high speed turn, leads into hard left switchback.
Turn 8 - Hard braking into left hand switchback, drop a couple of gears and prepare for another short but steep climb.
Turn 9 - Lift off a bit and quickly back on for a blast to the finish. Don't drift too wide, another big dropoff.
Finish - Heart pounding? Adrenalin shakes? Good, get ready for another run.
