Practice sessions on Saturday took place in the wet. As a result, competitors lost crucial practice time. Thankfully the sun shone brightly on the Simola Estate for the finals on Sunday. We were trackside to watch competitors attack the 1,9 km course. The large field consisted of standard road cars, such as the zippy Suzuki Swift Sport, all the way up to specialised single-seater hillclimb machines.

Andre Bezuidenhout secured his fifth consecutive victory in a purpose-built 2007 Gould GR55 hillclimb racer. Bezuidenhout completed the 1,9 km sprint in an astonishing time of 34,161 sec. In the process, he achieved an average speed of 201,18 km/h – from a standing start. Robert Wolk in a 1989 Pilbeam MP58 was second. Devin Robertson completed his weekend third overall in the Top 10 Shootout in a Suzuki-powered 1992 Radical SR1 ProSport.
