Hillclimbing is a form of motorsport that involves racing a car up a track or circuit on a hill. The circuits are timed and the winner is the driver who can reach the top of the route the quickest. Hillclimbing always takes place on tarmac or concrete and should not be confused with dirt-track trials. There is an almost unlimited range of tracks that can be used, and races can be found for virtually any type of car. Whether it is purely for recreation or in a competitive atmosphere, hillclimbing can be a very exciting form of racing. .
