Default Albany Classic Hill Climb

Went down this afternoon and got a few pictures.

Brad [WRX-STI] blew a hose off on his first run and retired after that.
Apparently it was pissing down with rain all morning and with some odd lightning too.

from my understanding 16-17" wheels are best for track/drag work etc..

Pretty sure its run under CAMS, and i think the cost for just the hill run side of things (yesterday) was around $150. Obviously, today's race was entirely classics, and tomorrow, they have another hill climb out at the windfarm. Not sure what the cost for the 2 events would be. Maybe Franz or Brad can shed some light.
