: !!Empire Hill Climb Revival!! Sept 20th.

08-20-2014, 09:02 AM
2014 marks the revival of a Northwest Michigan classic, The Empire Hill Climb. The race was run from 1964 to 1980 and at long last it is back! The course will be a short but challenging .5 miles and 8 turns, just a short walk from the shores of Lake Michigan. Parc Expose will be in downtown Empire letting spectators get up close and personal with the race cars before they make their way up the hill.

During its original running some of the best cars of their time made their way up the hill such as Austin Healey’s, Jaguar E-Type’s, AMC Javelin and Gremlin’s, Formula Ford and V’s, Triumph’s, Corvette’s, Porsche’s and even a Ferrari or two.

The scenic hillside offers fantastic spectating as the cars wind their way up the hill spectators can sit nearly above the racecars – close, but safe from the action.

The action starts Sept. 20th at 10am and ends at 6pm. Cars from all genres of racing will be present so come camp out in the woods and watch as the Empire Hill Climb Revival gets underway!

Happy to have signed on as a sponsor for this exciting event. We will be up there all weekend with the RALIVAN and a bunch of new wheels to show off. Maybe I can get a ride up the hill too ;)

So, where's everyone staying?

Sad to say I just now saw this!! Would be very cool! Hopefully this takes off again, then I'll have to throw something together for next year!

DH Day is a nice campground nearby if anyone is looking to camp. There will be a small posse there.
