Following are excerpts from the original 1955 GAMR Route instructions and the 2019 Revival run. This is a section of a public road in Keene NY that was used for a hill climb in the early 50’s.
We were able to run the 2019 contestants along that section; not as a timed (fastest) but for perfect time with a Regularity section. You will notice we had a CAS (Commence Average Speed of 25 mph). Doesn’t seem fast, but this road is steep, very curvy and not particularly smooth, even though it is paved today, unlike in the 50’s. The key to a good time in a Regularity is maintaining the CAS speed for the entire Regularity, in this case for almost 6 miles.
I am re-posting a link to a Hemmings story of the Hurricane Mountain Hill climb.
