Knox Mountain Hill Climb returns
- Gary Nylander
After being shut down for two years by the COVID-19 pandemic, the Knox Mountain Hill Climb made a spectacular return for its 63rd edition in Kelowna this past weekend.
Fifty-seven cars raced up the 3.5-kilometre course in the time-trial event Saturday and Sunday with about eight vehicles completing the nine-turn course in under two minutes.
Preliminary results showed the top time belonging to Mark Uhlmann with a clocking of 1:39.989, a little more than two seconds off the course record set by John Haftner of Vancouver.
The event also featured an electric car. Trevor Yip of North Vancouver drove an electric Tesla Cobra EV and broke the two-minute barrier in five of his eight runs.
