Every year CCR presents the Chasing the Dragon Hillclimb in Robbinsville, NC as part of the Southeast Division’s TT schedule. For 2019, it will be held on August 10-11. For event info, check here.
This is a family friendly event with several viewing areas along the course, food and souvenir vendors and free shuttle buses to haul spectators up and down the mountain! You can drive, volunteer or spectate! Volunteers get a free room for the weekend and it’s always free to come watch!
Hillclimbs are the fourth and top level of the Time Trials program. There are no safety fences or safe run-offs, so full safety gear is mandatory as it’s just you, your car and a mountain road. And, like all time trial events, the fastest time wins!The hillclimb site offers grass paddocks along the road side leading to the course. Most areas are wide enough to accommodate an enclosed car trailer and there is a large, secure area for open trailer storage. You don’t have to worry about leaving your equipment on the hill, the event site is guarded at night by the Graham County Sheriff’s Department.
