The Sporting Car Club of SA Inc., promoters of both events, are excited to announce that local company, Applewood Distillery have come on board as the naming rights partner for both events, each of which will be significant in their own right as both State and National Hill Climb Champions are crowned for 2017.

“Applewood Distillery has been at the forefront of South Australia’s emergence as a craft distilling destination and the opportunity to partner with the Sporting Car Club SA to present Australia’s championship event and showcase our products to spectators in this globally recognised and exciting sport was a great fit for us” said company director Brendan Carter.

With a more than 70 year championship history and track record of being won by some of Australia’s greatest driving and engineering talent the 4 day championship will bring the country’s fastest accelerating and best handling extreme performance track specials together for the ultimate showdown.
