Hill Climb at Jack’s Hill
Sunday 29th March 2020
Sponsored by Autocraft (WA) Pty Ltd & Galloway Engine Reconditioning
The Rally sporting event is a hill climb event which will be conducted at Jack’s Hill, located adjacent to the Barbagallo Raceway, approximately 17 minutes driving time from the Joondalup Resort.
Jack's Hill was established as a permanent hill climb course in 2005 and has hosted many Australian championship events in its time. It is approximately 800 metres in length with six turns and an elevation variation of 16 metres. It offers a number of configurations and bearing in mind that our Jaguars can be fairly heavy beasts we have chosen the most accommodating configuration.
The surrounding area to the circuit is lightly wooded and sandy, so should you find yourself off the tarmac you'll be ridding your car of WA sand for a while.
The Hill Climb will be a conducted as a Regularity event and is designed to give faster and slower cars an even opportunity to win by testing the driver’s ability to turn in consistent run times. The event is not a race, it is intended to improve driving skills, familiarisation of the vehicle’s performance capabilities and for sheer enjoyment under controlled conditions.
Competitors will complete one observation run in convoy fashion behind the pace car and up to four timed runs. The winner will be the driver who has the most consistent time over two timed runs with first, second and third prizes being awarded. In the event of a draw the driver with the lowest elapsed times will be declared the winner. Click on https://youtu.be/CZYT3wYRDmo to give yourself a taste of driving Jack's Hill climb.

Lunch for competitors and guests - Competitors will be provided with a light lunch at no charge. Additionally lunches for competitors’ guests can be purchased for $10, however these additional lunches will need to be ordered at the time of registration.
Opportunity to drive the hill climb track for National Rally delegates who are not event competitors: depending on the timing of completion of the event it may be possible for Jaguar National Rally delegates who are spectators at the event to register to complete one run of the hill climb track in convoy behind a pace car.
Getting there from Joondalup Resort – A direction map will be included in the Rally magazine and also available on the morning of the hill climb prior to departing the Joondalup Resort. We plan to drive to the circuit in convoy so no-one should find themselves lost.
