Limrick Hillclimb 2016

Screen Shot 2016-08-06 at 1.27.26 PMI wish we had more events like this in the United States. This is the 2016 Limrick Sprint Hillclimb put on by the Irish Hillclimb Association and the Limerick Motor Club. It’s like a brief tarmac rally stage in super unlimited cars. Check out the Toyota above for example. The little hatch is moving! The cool part about the video is you get to meet the drivers as they interview them after their final run. I like knowing who built and is driving the car.

Then you have the open wheel cars which look nuts. Some of the in-car video looks like its been sped up yet its real time. Check out this shot from one of the tighter corners. The inside front wheel is in the air!
