Ferrari Club of America - Southwest Region

Virginia City Hillclimb

The Virginia City Hillclimb is an annual auto racing event in Virginia City, Nevada. It's a time trial in which drivers try to better their own fastest elapsed time to complete the course.

The first Virginia City Hillclimb took place in 1972 when the Ferrari Owners Club of Southern California organized the event. The Hillclimb starts at an altitude of 5,000 feet and increases to 6,200 feet over 5.2 miles through 21 turns. Unlike any other Hillclimb event in North America, it has a separate return road. At the heart of the Hillclimb is unique timing software that keeps each vehicle separated by at least 30 seconds throughout the entire run.

All makes and models of vehicles are welcome, the only requirement being that the cars are street legal. Membership with the Ferrari Club of America is required for driver insurance purposes.

Where: Virginia City, Nevada.

When: September 14-15, 2024.

Entry fee: $800 per driver. There is a $100 discount for a second driver driving the same vehicle.

All drivers must register for the event. Registration closes on August 12, 2024.
