[PRESS] FIA Prizegiving in Austria

FIA Hill Climb Champions under the spotlight in Austria

The prize winners of the 2014 editions of the FIA European Hill Climb Championship and the FIA International Hill Climb Cup were honoured this Saturday, 8 November in Fladnitz, in Austria.

Whilst it is true that the very cradle of the European Hill Climb Championship, the environs of the famous Rechbergrennen, did not attract the 25,000 spectators who normally gravitate there towards the end of April each year, last Saturday, the key players of the recently-ended international hill climb season were all very much in attendance.

By tradition, the organisers of the dozen events that make up the European Championship take turns in hosting the presentation of the competition’s official prizes. After the Czech Republic in 2012 and France in 2013, the task of honouring the Champions fell this time to Austria. For the first time, the ceremony was not restricted to the prize winners of the European Championship but was broadened in order to be able to celebrate the best performers in the FIA International Hill Climb Cup, the calendar of which is also quite healthy, even if it is concentrated more and more on the countries of Eastern Europe.

New Google Maps Engine

This morning Google switched all my maps to their new mapengine. As this new version has different functionality the the previous version, all my maps look sort of weird now. I have to manually fix them one by one. Considering I have about 700 different maps at the moment, this will take a few weeks.

Quite often the new maps do not load properly. If that is the case, refresh the page a few times (press F5) until it works. The problem is with Google and there is not much I can do about that…
