Climb to the Clouds

The Mt. Washington Hillclimb, known as the Climb to the Clouds, was first run in 1904 and is one of America’s oldest motorsports events. In 2011 Vermont SportsCar brought back the Climb to the Clouds, June 24-26, 2011, after a 10 year hiatus to help celebrate the 150th Anniversary of the Mt. Washington Auto Road.

Organized by Vermont SportsCar and sanctioned by the Sports Car Club of New Hampshire the 2011 Climb to the Clouds attracted a 70-car competition field filled with some of the best drivers from around the world competing for “King of the Hill” honors.

The 7.6 mile Mt. Washington Auto Road is one of the ultimate challenges for driver and automobile, the serpentine tarmac and gravel road is lined with trees and dramatic drop-offs as it winds its way to the 6,288 foot summit of the Northeast’s tallest peak.
