Event Contact: http://www.knoxmtnhillclimb.ca/contacts.htm - bryanfulton@shaw.ca
Event Details: About The Knox Mountain Hillclimb - The Knox Mountain Hillclimb, is run annually on Knox Mountain Park Road, in the City of Kelowna. The road, while paved, is narrow with off-camber corners, and steep grades; a nice Sunday drive, but hardly a race track. It is 2.2 miles (3.5km) long, and climbs approximately 800 feet (245 meters) in elevation for an average grade of 6.7%.
Past its 59th year, Knox Mountain is the longest annually running paved hillclimb in North America. The event attracts top drivers from throughout the Pacific Northwest, looking for the challenge and thrill of being fastest.
Cars are run one at a time, each trying to reach the top in the lowest elapsed time. Drivers/cars compete in various classes from open wheeled formula cars to powerful large engined GT cars. But, each hopes to be "King of the Hill", earning the fastest time of the weekend.
The current hill record is 1m:37.065, held by John Haftner of Vancouver, British Columbia. Times under two minutes are considered exceptionally fast, with few drivers achieving that and even fewer sedans having ever achieved that. Most times fall between 2m00s and 2m30s. To achieve top times, speeds in excess of 160kpH must be reached on the short straights.

For you Seattle, Portland, Bay area and So Cal and East Coast groups, please list your local events.
There are some numbers in Texas and Florida as well, do you have local Datsun Shows that you can also list here?

Also, for the group planning to travel across the country attending Canby, I will post your event as well - as you may be able to catch some members of this forum as you traverse the country.

No Matter where you are in North America, let's list your Datsun events.

For event organizers; Even if you have a pretty good idea that your event is a go, list it here and update the details as you make them available. Getting the dates and locations down is the important part as people plan their vacations and summer in advance.

2017 KNOX MOUNTAIN HILLCLIMB, KELOWNA B.C.

May 20 + 21st., 2017

This will be the 60th running. I plan to attend on the Saturday one way or another, perfect scenario is the weather is good and we convoy up in the 510's.

I ran into a blizzard last year, which would have been INSANE on performance tires, I had to go dead slow in the Infinity.

PEACH CITY CAR SHOW, PENTICTON, B.C.

June 24th, 2017

The show is on Saturday, I really want to make this one, road trip, 1 day, leave early, show, some sort of dinner, drive back.

Good day Mr Vogon, thanks for your input. I updated the Knox event into the Datsun calendar of events as 510's often race this event, and it's really special this year being the 60th Annual running.

Are there other specific Datsun shows being planned this year that you all may have heard about? Please drop me a line and I'll look into it.

Event updated with your information Steve - thanks for providing this.

Are there any new Datsun events that you guys have heard of that we can add to this list? As the winter turns top spring, I would expect to hear of more shows.

Thanks,
Byron
