For many years, sports car clubs of the Northwest have been conducting hillclimbs – which are timed events on closed, paved roads.
The goal of the drivers is to try their darndest to be the quickest one up the hill. If they can’t be the fastest up the hill, they certainly try to be the quickest in their class.
The Northwest Hillclimb Association (NHA) was formed so licenses could be issued to run the Knox Mountain Hillclimb in Canada. Eventually NHA began and continues to:
- Acquire insurance at a reasonable rate for the sports car clubs in the Northwest.
- Provide a uniform set of rules regarding classing of cars.
- And, most importantly, promote both track and technical SAFETY.
