The 2017 CAMS Applewood Distillery Australian Hillclimb Championships returns for Collingrove Hillclimb's 65th Anniversary. A full field of Australia's best Motorsport Hillclimber's is to travel to the Barossa Valley venue to compete for both outright honours and a class victory. The entry includes the current Australian Hillclimb Champion, Malcolm Oastler who has won the title three times previously, he will be competing against other former title holders, Gary West (3 x times) and Greg Ackland (once) as well as the 2017 SA Hillclimb Champion, Nuriootpa's David Mahon for the outright honours.

The full field of competitors will include Classes for all types of cars from the regular daily driver through Marque Sports Cars, Rally Cars, open and closed Sports Cars, the ever colourful and fast Sports Sedans, historic Classes as well as the fabulously fast Hillclimb Specials. A full field of 150 competitors are expected and on Sunday the Event will conclude with the Autosport "Top twelve Shootout", pitching the fastest four open-wheel racers, the fastest four all wheel drive cars and the four fastest two-wheel drive (Fwd or RWD) cars against each other. Something for everyone to cheer on.

Collingrove Hillclimb has a rich history and is unique in character. Established in the early 1950's by a group of enthusiastic Sporting Car Club of SA Inc., members, as a purpose-built Hillclimb course, it was the venue of the first CAMS sanctioned event - the Australian Hillclimb Championship held at Easter 1953. After Bathurst, Collingrove is the oldest continuously operating motorsport venue in Australia.

Collingrove Hillclimb is tight, twisty and technical, requiring great courage, precision, and skill from the driver to gain a competitive time. The outright record of 27.25 secs is held by multiple Hillclimb Champion, Brett Hayward, in his self-engineered Hayward 014, a highly developed lightweight Hillclimb race car powered by a Hayabusa engine. This record was set in 2014 during the South Australian Hillclimb Championships the question is—will it be lowered in 2017?

Located just outside of Angaston in SA's beautiful Barossa Valley, the track of bitumen is 3 meters wide and climbs 61 metres over its length of 685 metres (750 yards). The designers included a portion that runs downhill, and there are blind crests and undulations to challenge the competitor. Collingrove Hillclimb is owned by the Sporting Car Club of SA Inc., one of the nations oldest and largest car clubs.

At Collingrove Hillclimb, there is abundant free parking and a wealth of excellent viewing spots. Bring a picnic or support the on-sight Canteen, providing the best of Barossa barbeque and bakery foods. Children free.

Collingrove Hillclimb track is to be found at 71 Hillclimb Road, Mount Mc McKenzie. Hillclimb Road is found 8km south of Angaston on the Eden Valley Road—just follow the signs.
