Empire Hill Climb in Empire, MI
2014 marked the revival of a Northwest Michigan classic, The Empire Hill Climb. The race was run from 1964 and 1980 and at long last it is back! The course will be a short but challenging .5 miles and 8 turns just a short walk from the shores of Lake Michigan. Parc Expose will be in the downtown of Empire letting spectators get up close to the race cars before they make their way up the hill.
During its original running all sorts made their way up the hill in some of the best cars of their time, such as Austin Healey’s, Jaguar E-Type’s, AMC Gremlin’s, Formula Ford and V’s, Triumph’s, Corvette’s, Porsche’s and even a Ferrari or two.
The scenic hillside offers fantastic spectating as the cars wind their way up the hill spectators can sit nearly above the racecars – close, but safe from the action.
The action starts at 10am and ends at 6pm. Cars from all genres of racing will be present so come camp out in the woods and watch as the Empire Hill climb Revival gets underway!
