BURKE 1 HILLCLIMB 2014

Postby kindabratty328 » Tue Jun 10, 2014 8:14 am

Hi Everyone,

Burke 1 is just around the corner!! Dates are July 11 - 14, 2014. Entry form and information are now available. Please, please, please, enter early. There is nothing worse than having to turn someone away because they are late entering and the event is full. Also, please let me know if you need a campsite. Burke is a GREAT event. Hope to see you all there.

Michele

You should have my registration and check from Sunday (I left it to Sherman). I didn't realize that we had to pay you for camping at the same time, sorry.
Hopefully my 24ft enclosed trailer will be ready and I'll be able to sleep in it. What site would you recommend to fit the trailer in? Or is there a parking outside where I should park to leave the camping spots to people with tents?

Rookies always have silly questions!
Thanks again
Manu

The questions ain't silly-not asking them would be. ;)
The campsites at Burke are small. 2 cars + a tent would fill them up. But there is a parking lot where we park our trailers -and those with large rigs camp up there. There is a foot path from the lot to the camp-2 minute walk. If you drive back to the lot, maybe 1/4 mile--hard packed dirt. Its a steep turn in to the lot-you might want to think about putting a couple more turns into the coilovers. :shock: And pulling off the hill + into the campround usually has a big dip that makes the low cars scrape too.
Translating road racing to hillclimbing:
Proper tire selection== nothing hooks up on moss or wet leaves.
Staying on the racing line==anything paved is considered good.

Camp site 10 looks like it would have enough trees to hang a couple hammocks, could I reserve that one? I only paid for the event registration, not the campsite; I'll have to pay for that when I get there - will that work?

Thanks for the heads up!

What is the fee to camp in the large parking lot?

Where is the staging area? Is it in the campground?

I have an AutoX the week before and changing ride height is a big job as I'll need to re-align and re-corner balance the car if I have to do that. I was hoping for something smooth :)

I will let Sherm address the parking lot overnight fee - I think it is cheap.

The circuit the cars follow is to loop clockwise thru the campground and stage along the northern loop up to the rangers cabin. There are at least 2 pretty big dips in the campground road that compel me to remove my front fascia before driving thru so I would guess you would have front air dam and possibly center breakover clearance issues at a road circuit ride height. Also Burke in the past has had a few bumps in the road (probably rocks being pushed up) that are tricky to avoid completely - I straddle them - but I have tapped my splitter on them so a very low ride height might be a problem unless your lowest bits can take that abuse. That is part of hillclimbing in Vermont...
