Default Bible Creek Hill Climb

Just got back from a fun filled weekend at the Bible Creek Hill Climb just outside of Tillamook, OR. Super technical hill with lots of corners. Took nearly till my final run to fully know where I was going. My quickest run set a new SSM record and put me as 6th overall and the 3rd fastest door slammer with a 2:13.590. Behind my friend's SPO LS1 BMW 328IS with a 2:12.2 and a fully prepped BSP Subaru STI with a 2:12.9. Both running 285 Hoosier A6's. Had I been on Hoosiers I wonder what would have been different..

On the way back to Canada we also stopped off at K1 Speed Go Carts in Redmond, and I set the new track record with a 16.109 down from a 16.404. :P...



Pictures will follow in a bit.

Nice! With tires you would have slaughtered them.

Yeah, and if I wouldn't have locked it into the hard right at the top I might have done it that run... you'll notice I locked it up and had to drop it to 2nd to get going again. I feel that if I would have had one more shot at the hill I think I might have gotten into the 12's. The other 3 cars were home built A-Mod and Formula cars running in the low 2:00's. 4 out of the top 7 spots were from our group of Canadian's that came down .

Next Hill Climb I'm going to is The Mary Hill Loops in WA. in Sept. Hopefully I will have some A6's by then if I can afford it. Otherwise I'll stay on the R888's since they seem to be working OK for now.

This was also the first weekend with the new splitter/wing and the splitter mounts got demolished. Working on version 2.0 now. Def happy I decided to go with birch wood. Alumalite would not have lasted the 5+ bottom outs I had on the straight.

Wee bit happy with your results? I know the feeling, when a lap really hooks together.

Redefines scary fun, 1:35 looks a little hairy?

Is your mirror turned for the camera or your view, seems like a removable version would be good. On for the track and road, off for hill climbs when no ones going to pass you.

Can you tell ? I was running 2:17's all the day before and seemed to get hung up at 15's on Sunday for my first two runs. That video was my last of the weekend and dropped to the 2:13.5 so you can see I was happy when I saw the board at the top... lol. Being 1.5 seconds off my friend in a $50,000+ built SPO car made me happy and beating his co-driver in the same car. That... and the majority of people run in the 2:30+. Not only myself but our whole group kept getting the wide eyes from everyone when they heard what we were running. Of course having some experience helps, although I wouldn't come close to calling myself a superstar, just comfortable in my car. Definatley the right car to be in with all the tight corners and esses.

The whole hill was hairy... 1:35... I think that's where I locked up into the right hander? Yeah it was a sphincter clencher.

Yea the mirror is pushed aside so I don't see it and gives me a bit extra view out the front.

Nice driving! And looks like a really fun place to be.
I can't for the world of me understand why you'd like to add twincharging, that rotrex setup seems to be great, and from what i understand, really really reliable?

Yeah I'm starting to re think it. There are a few other things I think would make the car better, namely a six spd, 15s, tires and possibly dropping the rpm to low 7k and spinning the rotrex earlier for some more torque. Torque was the one thing I wish I had more of on the weekend as you can sere a but more grunt out of some of the tight corners would have been nice.

Its extremely reliable. We have had nothing but problems with my friends bmw (and I am always the one who ends up fixing it). This weekend he snapped an axle and had to drive 8 hours round trip all over portland to find a replacement which I put in sunday morning. Funny how his car is easy $50+k and only was .5% faster on a6's and always breaks.

How much in the way of practice runs do you get on a course like this (public road)? Looks like you are not local by a long stretch, so I assume you have not spent much time on it prior to the race.

No practice runs. 4 on the first day, 3 on the second. However you can drive up and down it a few times the day before (we got there in the evening) but it doesn't do you much good because the road is open and you can't drive the line. My first run up the hill was a 2:28. Pussyfooting it everywhere until I started to know where I was, which corners were tight which ones were open so I could adjust entry speed/line (they were ALL blind so you kind of had to know where you were). That was my first time at the road ever... yes. That's part of the fun.

Ok I kind of figured that. I wish Colorado had some hill climbs (besides Pikes Peak) that were paved, kind of odd in a state covered with mountains that there aren't any.
