Annual Savage Hillclimb in Iceland!

Fri, 15th June 2007

Once again, our friends in Iceland have held their Savage Hillclimb event, this time bringing over 35 drivers and their friends and families to one of the toughest events these drivers might see! Held on the 20th of May in Reykjavik, the event has been organized for the past 3 years by Selas, a major HPI shop in Iceland Egill Sigurbjörnsson was the skilled Savage owner who walked away with the Concours d' Elegance title and trophy, winning it with his brightly painted Bronco bodyshell with a commemorative Savage Slam '07 paint scheme.

With a course laid out over a large, rocky dirt hill, the goal of the drivers was to earn as many points as possible by running 10 different courses. Based on the famous Formula Off-Road series that is very popular in Iceland, each course consists of a series of 'gates' that are made up of pairs of marked flags that go up the hill. As the driver passes through each gate, they earn 20 points, but if they touch one of the flag poles they lose 10 points. Plenty of dirt-throwing action ensued all day, until at the end a new champion was crowned, defeating all comers and stealing the title away from the two-time Savage Hillclimb champion!
