Brevity[edit]

Apologies for the brevity of the non-UK sections, but I simply don't have the required knowledge. I hope to put a bit more in, but a decent explanation will have to await the arrival of an editor who knows what they're talking about there! Loganberry 16:18, 4 Dec 2004 (UTC)

As has in fact now happened with the New Zealand section - thank you! More of the same would be extremely welcome. Loganberry 23:02, 30 Apr 2005 (UTC)

I've seen Barbon quoted as both 880 and 890 yards, but Autosport (19 May 2005 edition) says 890, so I'm going to go with that subject to any further information. Loganberry 13:22, 19 May 2005 (UTC)

Snowmobile hillclimbing[edit]

I don't see any mention of snowmobile hillclimbing in this article. I'm still learning Wikipedia nomenclature so maybe someone can help me to add this info. The most well known snowmobile hillclimb event is the world championships held each year at Jackson Hole, Wyoming. There is some good information on the event at the sponsoring organization's site here, [23] and an article in Popular Mechanics here [24] —Preceding unsigned comment added by Alwaystheretrading (talkcontribs) 17:19, 3 July 2008 (UTC)

Nomenclature[edit]

I think I've got this right now...

Both European and British championships are officially "[Whatever] Hill Climb Championship"; however "Hillclimb" is more commonly written as a single word, and so this article is at "Hillclimbing" rather than "Hill climbing". Loganberry 22:27, 27 May 2005 (UTC)

Not to mention the fact that it's Shelsley Walsh Speed Hill Climb but Prescott Speed Hillclimb! Loganberry (Talk) 23:01, 25 August 2005 (UTC)

Article Split[edit]

The two varities of hillclimb are entirely different sports, and should probably have seperate pages. Not only would this help clear up some ambiguity, it would also promote clean-up and expansion of both varities, particularly that of the American Hillclimb. I think it would be appropriate for someone to put a dedicated effort into splitting this article into two, no? 24.175.54.43 22:36, 22 June 2006 (UTC)

"Entirely different" is rather strong; they're no different from, say, a single-stage rally and the Paris-Dakar, both of which are covered on the rallying page. Having said that, I'd don't think I'd have much objection to more detailed articles being split out for those sections which could justify them: right now that would be, perhaps, Hillclimbing in the British Isles and Hillclimbing in the United States. Loganberry (Talk) 22:57, 22 June 2006 (UTC)
"Entirely different" I'd say what's described under "Sweden" is better known as "scrambling", not "hillclimbing". It's a distinct variation, hence the different name. It also uses no road at all, so it's not a mere stylistic difference, which single-stage or point-to-point rallys might be. TREKphiler any time you're ready, Uhura 03:19, 24 April 2012 (UTC)
