VSCCA Wilbraham Hill Climb
July 7- 8, 2017
The Wilbraham Hill Climb is a re-enactment of the 1908 historic climb up Monson Mountain Road, an unofficial proving ground for many of the early automobile and motorcycle manufacturers of the Brass Era. The 1908 event was put on by the Automobile Club of Springfield and sanctioned by the racing board of the American Automobile Association. The cars were timed over a measured mile by the Timing Club of New York City. The 72 car field was broken down into 21 classes for engine type, displacement and price. It was a challenging and exciting run. The VSCCA is excited to hold this biennial event. Join your fellow racers and families for The Climb up Wilbraham Mountain this year.
The entry fee of $155.00 includes a commemorative polo shirt for all entered drivers as well as lunch for you and a guest. There will be fun for the whole family. This event is a town wide celebration in the spirit of the good old days and as such with an additional brass era auto show on town green, food vendors, band and much more.
Several car clubs will be exhibiting cars at there own sites along Main St Saturday. We expect a significant contingent of Bugattis, Bentleys, Ferraris and Early Brass, just to name a few.
If you are not running the hill you can exhibit your car in the paddock or along Main St. Commemorative Hill Climb polo shirts will be available for purchase. The VSCCA festivities begin Friday at 5pm with a Kick off barbecue under the VSCCA tent at George Holman’s home ; $25.00/person or $45.00/couple.
