Three days, 75 cars, some of the best race and rally drivers from around the world, competing for “King of the Hill” honors on the Northeast’s tallest peak-Mt. Washington!
Known as one of the oldest motorsports events in the United States, the Climb to the Clouds was first run in 1904 and is now returning on July 7-9, 2017!
New hood acquired after hood pin failures at the end of last year!
My favorite tailgater is back behind me. Been running around since 6 am this morning picking up parts and such, a few hours in the garage and she’ll be ready for testing at Pocono tomorrow. Going down to the Clean Culture meet and hopefully meeting some new faces!
Getting the Subie ready for the Mt Washington hill climb, Hood wrapped, some final work on the STI then testing at Pocono.
Tyler Stalls > Amy I know we need to hang out more. It sucks when you live 3 and half hours away. But I personally know you are one of the most dedicated individuals out there pro or am in the racing world. You literally are what you say when you say “race all the things”.
You are gonna hop in that purple people eater of yours….. And you are not gonna just drive up mt washington. You are going to dominate it. And maybe just maybe make people go “who the hell was driving that purple STI?”.
You got this. I and many others are behind ya 100% of the way. Go #TeamAmyDilks
Christy Carlson > I found an 06 longblock ready to go at Kinetic, but the owner wants $$ for it. Would anyone else be willing to chip-in to help her pay for it so she can get it in and run it?
After an engine swap Amy Dilks was able to get in the second run and will get to race tomorrow ..#CTTC2017
WE MADE IT!!! First run in the books and I have an official time up Mt Washington. 8 minutes flat on a pretty conservative run since I didn’t have much practice time. 42nd overall and 3rd in class!!! We did it team!

The car climbed Mt Washington twice, and I get to go home with a few souvenirs. This event was such an amazing experience, thank you. Thank you to everyone. I am speechless, and thank you doesn’t seem enough.
