Hill­climb sec­tion to run on Manx Clas­sic event

Motor Sport News - - Historics -

The newly-resur­faced Sloc hill­climb will re­turn to the sched­ule for the three-day Manx Clas­sic next April when up to 100 cars will tackle three dif­fer­ent hills on three con­sec­u­tive days over closed pub­lic roads on the Isle of Man.

The Sloc, re­cently used on Rally Isle of Man for the first time in 36 years, will be run on Thursday April 27 be­fore the ac­tion moves to two sec­tions of the TT course. Climbs at Creg Wil­ley (1.39-miles) on Fri­day and then Lhergy Fris­sell, the 1.48-mile climb out of Ram­sey, com­plete the event.

The 1.06-mile Sloc hill was last used in 2013 due to a de­te­ri­o­rat­ing road sur­face, but is now in su­perb con­di­tion.

Sloc will be part of the Manx
