Results Bergrennen Hemberg 2017

Marcel Steiner is the winner of the first round of the Swiss Hillclimb Championship. At the Bergrennen Hemberg Steiner defeated reigning champion Eric Berguerand and Simon Hugentobler.

It was an unlucky weekend for two of the favourites in the touringcars. Ronnie Bratschi had a hard crash in practise, apparently because of a technical defect in his Mitsubishi Lancer. His weekend was over at that point. Reto Meisel set fastest touringcar time in the first race on Sunday. However in the second race his Mercedes Benz SLK 340 inexplicably stalled in the middle of his run. This resulted in a 20 seconds loss of time. The problem repeated itself in the third and final run, which meant that Meisel dropped way down the order.

Roger Schnellmann benefitted from the misfortune of his rivals. Not that he did not deserve his succes here. Apart from Meisel he was the only touringcar driver to complete the track in under 1 minute. Romeo Nüssli was second best while Simon Wüthrich completed the podium.

-Upd- Accident Richard Hammond at Bergrennen Hemberg 2017

The Swiss Hillclimb Championship starts this weekend with the Bergrennen Hemberg. Today, Saturday, the competitors were participating in practise before the actual race begins tomorrow.

Surprise special guests at this edition were the members of “The Grand Tour” television show. Jeremy Clarkson, James May and Richard Hammond were there to film a piece about electric sportscars. They did not participate in the actual competition but drove in between practise sessions. As they drove the track it all went wrong for Richard Hammond. For unknown reasons he and his Rimac Concept One Sportscar missed a corner and went off the track. As it happened a 100 metres behind the finishline there were no barriers. For that reason the car rolled down the slope, luckily without hitting anything. Hammond climbed out of the car on his own account before the car burst into flames. The presenter was airlifted to hospital but it appears that he has no more injuries than a fractured knee.

The race will continue tomorrow as planned. A race report and the complete results will be posted here as soon as possible.

Revised Calendar Swiss Hillclimb Championship 2017

The provisional calendar for the 2017 Swiss Hillclimb Championship was posted here some time ago. Since that time it has become clear that the Course de Côte de Massongex will not take place next year. There is also a date clash on the 2nd of July between Reitnau and La Roche – La Berra. Apparently this is not a mistake and both hillclimbs will seriously attempt to organise a race the same day. La Roche will have the advantage of being in the Swiss Championship.

The new calendar will look like this:
