Hot Rod Hill Climb Day One – Hot Rod Magazine

Written by Scotty Lachenauer on August 15, 2015

Picking up right where he left off in September, 2014, Mike “Nick” Nicholas has corralled his troops and headed back to Georgetown, Colorado, for the third in a series of recreations of the famous Hot Rod Hill Climbs up Leavenworth Mountain. The quiet, quirky hamlet of Georgetown is now under siege by a legion of hot rodders and their trusty rides, all ready to do battle with the 1,000+ foot rise up Guanella Pass Road, just like their peers did more than 60 years ago.

Hot Rod Hill Climb Brings Raucous to the Mountain

Kristine Cline wrote a great article on Driving Line while Chris Shelton provided the photos…

It may strike you as unbelievable but Pike’s Peak isn’t Colorado’s only historic competitive hill climb. Sixty years ago a bunch of racers gathered in Georgetown, a little mining town west of Denver in the same spirit as Pike’s Peak racers: to see who could scramble up a pretty treacherous gravel pass in the shortest time. In fact the racers followed in the footsteps their competitive forebears in all ways but one: the cars they drove. For nearly a century Pike’s Peak racers built cars specifically to climb a particular hill, but participants from various clubs in the Denver Timing Association brought their hot rods.
