West Heading East

Three times Australian Hillclimb Champion Gary West will be crossing the Nullarbor Plain from his base in Western Australia.

West will be using Bathurst Light Car Club’s May Mountain Straight Hillclimb as practice for the 75th Australian Hillclimb Championship to be held at Mt Panorama 1st – 3rd November 2019.

West contested the Australian Hillclimb Championship at Mt Panorama in 2006 where he defeated the then current British Champion Martin Groves on the last run of the event. In 2008, again on the last run of the event, he defeated Andrew Howell.
