Knysna Hillclimb 2015.
On the weekend of 15/16/17 May, Ralph took part in the Simola Hillclimb, in Knysna.
Friday is the Documentation, scrutineering, town display and town parade. The Town parade was so exciting, and the “hooligans” had a ball “racing” in a controlled manner, through the main streets of the quiet little town of Knysna.
Simola Hill is a 1.9km road that has twists and turns and an ascent unique to its path.
The aim is to get from the start line, to the finish line as quickly as possible.
Saturday was the start of the “racing” The competitors got to do 5 practice runs, and 2 Qualifying runs.
Sunday they did the last 3 Qualifying runs, and then it was time for the Class Finals and the King of the Hill Shootout.
Ralph came 3rd in his Class - B1 - Race Cars - Saloons.
His best time up the hill for 2015 was 54.0 seconds
While it is costly to travel down to Knysna, and back, towing the race car, we wouldn't miss it for anything.
Ralph has taken part in this event since 2012.
We even managed to spend some time with Xavier Gobille, as can be seen in the pics below !

focused on those makes and models of vehicles that make up a large segment of

compete with other imported products to enable Shatterprufe customers to
service the trade markets (used car dealers and panel beaters) as well as
walk-in and cash customers. The anticipated increase in volumes from this
uninsured market will result in a lower average manufacturing and distribution
cost per windscreen which can be leveraged across the insured customer base.
