Legend of the Lakes Hillclimb – Mt Gambier

My first motor sport publicity job was quite literally an uphill battle – Mount Gambier’s Legend of the Lakes Hillclimb. The unique event saw cars racing within a volcano crater, conquering the 1.4-kilometre circuit with 16 sharp bends in under 51 seconds – incredible!

Mount Gambier’s Peter Gazzard continued his domination of the mountain path after edging out long-time Victorian rival Kevin Mackrell by just five tenths of a second to claim his seventh title in 10 years.
