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.

Results GHD Lučine 2016

160814_lucineThis weekend the International Hillclimb Cup (IHCC) visited Slovenia for the GHD Lučine. The weather was perfect for hillclimb racing and the trackrecord was broken multiple times.

The first to go under the trackrecord was Vaclav Janik. But before the first race was over Federico Liber had already retrieved his record with a faster time. In the second run Janik took back the lead and in the third run he improved his time still a little bit more. Liber on the other hand could not hold onto his speed from the first run so the Italian had to yield victory to Janik. With this victory Janik is now secure of the International Hillclimb Cup Category II. His closest rival and teammate Petr Trnka finished third in Lucine which saw him secure second place in points.

In Category III Ronnie Bratschi was the only driver to seriously compete in the IHCC. The Swiss was present in Lucine but retired in the first race run. Nevertheless he still secured the Category III title.

Only in Category I is the points race still open. Although Laszlo Hernadi has competed in almost all the events, it is not enough to clinch the title. As he competes in S2000 the Hungarian only scores half points at each event. He added another nine points to his total in Lucine but still lost his championship lead. For Gabriella Pedroni it was only her third event of the season. But Group A victory gave the full 25 points which gives her a 7,5 point lead over Hernadi.

Entrylist Course de Côte de Saint Ursanne – Les Rangiers 2016

160821_stursanneThe 10th round of the European Hillclimb Championship will take place in Switzerland next week. The Course de Côte de Saint Ursanne – Les Rangiers will then celebrate its 73th edition. The entrylist is massive with over 200 drivers planning to participate. Biggest class is E2-SS 2000 with 30 entries.

Favourites for victory are obviously Simone Faggioli and Christian Merli, but David Hauser could be an outsider. Competing in his 4 litre Dallara GP2 in the Luxembourg championship he has a power advantage which could be an advantage on the highspeed track.

Results Cazin Grand Prix 2016

160807_cazinThe Central European Zone Hillclimb Championship visited Bosnia and Hercegovina this weekend for the Cazin Grand Prix. The race also counted for the Hillclimb Championships of Croatia and Montenegro.

Laszlo Szasz and Milos Asanovic battled for victory all weekend long. Both won one of the race sessions but it was the better aggregate time that gave the advantage towards Szasz. For the Croat-Hungarian it was his fourth victory at the Bosnian track.

Results Bergrennen Osnabrück 2016

160807_osnabruckThe International Hillclimb Cup visited its shortest event on the schedule. The Bergrennen Osnabrück in northern Germany also counted towards the Luxembourg Championship. Even though Joel Volluz was quickest in the second of three races, his aggregate time was not enough to keep Christian Merli from victory. Behind the two Osella FA30 pilots finished Cup points leader Vaclav Janik in third.

Ronnie Bratschi scored maximum points in E1 with class victory. The Swiss was also best touringcarpilot in the event. He was joined on the podium by the two GT3 BMW’s of local circuit racing squad Walkenhorst Racing.
