Midlands Motorsport Competitors Try Out the New Course

Friday 16 January 2015

In November, we invited several members of the Midlands motorsport community to help us with our launch video, and gave them a sneak preview of the Hill Climb course.

The new Hill Climb course is twice the length of the original sprint course, and very challenging.  While there are some very fast sections, the course also includes a number of very tight bends, quite often at the end of long straights.

To find out just how challenging it was and to get some brilliant content for our blog and social media channels, we invited several drivers to bring their cars to the Chateau and give it a go. While they were tearing it up the course, the team from Hayfisher and our marketing team at Alias were capturing every moment of it on film so that we could get some great content for our promotional videos, which we’ll be sharing over the next few months.
