Mount Leura, Camperdown, VIC, 3260
Watch as Light Cars race Mount Leura in the Victorian Hillclimb Championship Round three. A spectacle for all to see. Competitors race to the finish line, about half way up and where the safety fencing ends. After crossing the finish line competitors continue on at a much reduced pace to the lookout car park at the top where they turn around and park on the side of the road, back down the hill near the finish line. When about 20 vehicles are assembled, the racing stops to allow these cars back down the track and into the pit area
The history of the Mt Leura Hillclimb at Camperdown began with the formation of the Camperdown Motor Sports Club (CMSC) on 14th April 1958. However the formation of the Camperdown and District Car Club on 30 September 1954 pre dated the Motorsports club. Prior to this motorcycle hillclimbs had been organized by the local motor cycle club as early as the 1920s, using various hills located near Camperdown, including Mt Leura and Mt Sugarloaf.
A group of approximately 25 motoring enthusiasts from Camperdown and surrounding areas formed the club with the purpose of providing sprint type motorsport to the area.
Unfortunately the club disbanded in 1987. The Ford Four Car Club took over, followed by the current promoter, The Ballarat Light Car Club.
