I realize that this is late notice but I would like to extend an invitation to VRG members to come and participate in the VSCCA Hershey Hillclimb, otherwise known as the Grand Ascent Hill Climb at Hershey.
The Grand Ascent Hill Climb at Hershey, June 8th and 9th
New this year, in addition to all the cars that are currently accepted by the VSCCA, we are opening up the Grand Ascent at Hershey to a few additional classes of cars! The idea is to match the cars to the history of the event. The new production year limit is 1970, which is the last year the original Hershey Hillclimb was run. See below for details on eligibility.
Timed runs will begin on Friday and last into Saturday. We will again have digital timing displayed at the top of the hill after you pass the finish line and online LIVE timing visible on your smartphone or on the display at the event headquarters tent!
The Friday night kick-off party at the Hershey GardensConservatory will feature wonderful food and music held amid a beautiful lush indoor garden with a great collection of butterflies. It is just the way to begin a weekend that is certain to count as one of the more memorable times you can spend with your family. The VSCCA Saturday night dinner at the “What If… Of Hershey” restaurant will top the day off.
If you can stick around for Sunday, the Elegance Concourse is one of the best in the country and quite a sight to behold.

Grand Ascent at Hershey General Eligibility Requirements
- Any and all VSCCA cars with VSCCA logbooks are always eligible.
- All later year cars are approved on a case by case basis.
- All cars and driver equipment must conform to the VSCCA Safety Regulations (at a minimum).
- Cars should be prepared similarly to VSCCA cars where presentation and originality are of greater importance than performance.
- No slick tires or tires with “holographic” tread.
Specific Invitational Car Classes
≤ 1970 Production sports cars and sporting sedans of up to approximately 1500cc engine displacement
≤ 1970 Sports Racers from SCCA H-Mod/DSR and G-Mod/CSR
≤ 1970 Formula V
Possible exceptions in excess of the above might be possible for historically significant cars or cars that are “stock” or lightly prepared.
For example, I would be happy to have any of the 1970 and older "LBC" cars we all know and love. If you would like to come, please get in touch soon.
