The first national hillclimb championship to begin in 2017 is the Spanish. In exactly two weeks time the Subida a Estepona – Peñas Blancas in Andalucia hosts the opening round of the season. The track has changed somehwat from previous years as both the start and finishline were moved downhill. With 7,6 kilometres it is still the longest hillclimb in the Spanish Championship.

Entries are still open for another week, but a small provisional entrylist is already available. Current Spanish and Andalucian champion Humberto Janssens will not defend his titles this year as he is recovering from surgery.

Results Pujada a Alcover 2017

The 2017 hillclimb season started this weekend with the Pujada a Alcover in Catalunya. Francesc Munne dominated practise with fastest times in all three session. But right before the first race disaster struck as his new Demon Car R34 refused to start. The car was repaired but Munne arrived a little late at the start of the second race. This resulted in a penalty and zero points. Ramon Plaus benefitted to win the event in front of Albert Lopez. Edgar Montella was second quickest in the first race but a retirement in the second race saw him drop to third. As expected Gerard De La Casa dominated the touringcars with his Seat Cordoba WRC.

Entrylist Pujada a Alcover 2017

Provisional entrylist of the Pujada a Alcover. 27 drivers are entered in the speed hillclimb and another 11 will participate in the regularity event. The + and – split in the CM category has so far done nothing for the excitement championship: just two drivers each in both categories. Of course it is still early in the year so lets hope it will improve in the coming months.

For the complete timing see the previous post from February 12.

Preview and Timing Pujada a Alcover 2017

In exactly one week time the Pujada a Alcover is scheduled to open the 2017 hillclimb year in Europe. This 4,1 kilometre long hillclimb will count towards the Catalunya Hillclimb Championship. It will be the very first edition so it will be a new experience for everyone.

Last year Francesc Munne won the CM Championship after a hard battle with Ramon Plaus. Both drivers took three victories but Munne had 5 second places while Plaus finished in the runner-up spot just twice. Munne has sold his championship winning Demon Car and for the moment has not announced his plans for 2017.
For the past few years Gerard De La Casa has dominated the Touringcar Championship in Catalunya. In 2016 this was no different and he steered his Seat Cordoba WRC to victory in five of the eight events. The driver from Andorra has been busy this winter with the GSeries Ice Racing in his native country. In fact the next round of this championship is next Saturday so an entry in Alcover will be difficult.
In 2017 there will also be a seperate championship for the CM+ machines that were first spotted in the Spanish Championship in 2016.
