Preview and Entrylist Course de Côte de Saint-Jean-du-Gard 2017

The International Hillclimb Cup (IHC) starts this weekend with the Course de Côte de Saint-Jean-du-Gard / Col Saint Pierre. The preview can be very short as their are zero entries in the IHC.

Of course the race also counts towards the French Hillclimb Championship. Here there are 133 entries. It is almost certain that Sébastien Petit, Cyrille Frantz and Geoffrey Schatz will finish 1-2-3. As usual the battles behind them are more interesting. There are 14 Formula 3 cars entered, 9 Formula Renaults and 23 CN2 cars. The CN3 class is also starting to get interesting has grown, at Saint-Jean-du-Gard there are now 6 cars entered.

In the touringcars champion Nicolas Werver will debut his new Porsche 997 GT2. There were quite a few drivers in GTTS that had problems in Bagnols Sabran three weeks ago, with crashes for Philippe Schmitter and Yannick Poinsignon and mechanical issues for Pierre Courroye. Hopefully they will all have a troublefree run to challenge for victory.

There are also 2 support races this weekend. Of course the historics with 30 entries. But also the Caterham Cup which will make its hillclimb debut. The Caterhams are divided into three classes. ACA is the Academy, which is for rookies, ROAD which brings cars in road-legal specifications, and finally R300 which are the more powerful Duratec engined Caterhams.

Preview, Timing and Entrylist Rechbergrennen 2017

Just one week and one day before the European Hillclimb Championship starts at the Rechbergrennen. Just under 250 drivers have entered of which 169 in the modern race and the other 80 in the historics. Apart of the EHC there are also points for the national championships of Austria, Slovakia and Slovenia.

In Category 2 the best 8 drivers of 2016 return this year. Simone Faggioli is the favourite in E2-SC. In E2-SS the three Osella FA30s of Christian Merli, Paride Macario and Milos Benes will be the drivers to watch. In CN Andrea Bormolini has switched to a 3-litre Osella PA20/S to have a little horsepower advantage over the opposition. Fellow Italians Stefano Crespi and Marco Capucci will be his closest rivals. E2-SH appears to be another year of Czech domination. Marek Rybnicek, Dan Michl, Vladimir Vitver and Jiri Los will go for victory with Polish driver “Dubai” as outsider.

In Category 1 champion Nikola Miljkovic has moved to the circuit racing. Shkelzen Lajci and Jaromir Maly will battle it out for Group N victory this year. In previous years the championship was always decided between Group A and Group N. Because the Lancers are not homologated in Group A anymore it will be a struggle to get full points at every race this season. Nevertheless Lukas Vojacek will contest (most?) races in a Subaru Impreza WRX. In Austria he will have a formidable rival in Mini Cooper WRC pilot Jan Liptak. Group GT has 4 entries from4 nations in 4 different cars. FIA Hillclimb Masters winner Lucio Peruggini could be the favourite here. Finally Laszlo Hernadi is the only driver in Group S2000.

Results Course de Côte de Saint Ursanne – Les Rangiers 2016

160821_stursanneSimone Faggioli was again unbeatable at the Course de Côte de Saint Ursanne – Les Rangiers. At the fastest hillclimb in Europe Faggioli broke his own trackrecord with quite a margin to take victory. David Hauser was best singleseater driver in second. However the driver from Luxembourg only scores points for his own nation’s championship. As a result Christian Merli keeps the pressure on Faggioli in the European Championship.

As Eric Berguerand was not present this weekend Joel Volluz had a great chance to score some points for the Swiss Hillclimb Championship. A serious accident in the first race heat prevented that plan. As a result Marcel Steiner was the best local in fourth. The most competitive class this weekend was the E2-SS -2000 with almost 30 drivers. Darren Warwick proved the fastest driver in this class and the Briton also finished fifth overall.

Best of the touringcar drivers was Reto Meisel with his unique Mercedes SLK340. He was closely followed by Ronnie Bratschi and E2-SH winner Dan Michl. Nikola Miljkovic and Christian Schweiger both won their classes so this category of the European Championship remains unchanged.
