New date: Int. 53rd Hill Climb Race Osnabrück on 21-22 August 2021

The Int. 53rd ADAC Hill Climb Race Osnabrück “Cars & Fun” on the legendary 2.030 km Uphöfener Berg track will be held on 21-22 August 2021. This is two weeks later than originally announced by the MSC Osnabrück organisers. “We had no choice but to reschedule”, explains Chairman of the Organising Committee Bernd Stegmann, “if we want to bring the very best drivers and cars from all of Europe to Osnabrück again next year.“ The Osnabrück event is very popular internationally, with drivers from 15 countries. It was the international race calendar which made the surprise rescheduling unavoidable. For years the Osnabrück event has been the only German round of the FIA Int. Hill Climb Cup, and the Cup regulations now require a minimum break of two weeks between two rounds. The organisers of the individual rounds are not aware of the dates requested by their peers, and so it turned out in August that Lučine (Slovenia) and Osnabrück had submitted conflicting dates for 2021. The FIA Hill Climb Commission insisted, which could have resulted in one of the two events being dropped from the FIA Int. Hill Climb Cup in 2021. Both organisers were keen to avoid this. In intense discussions held in a very cooperative spirit they finally found a scheduling solution which allows both events to host the FIA Int. Hill Climb Cup in 2021. So the numerous friends of the Int. Hill Climb Race Osnabrück can look forward to a great weekend featuring spectacular international hill climb on 21-22 August ...


New role: Sanitary officer

The Covid-19 pandemic is likely to impose restrictions on motor sport for a while yet. All events will need well-prepared sanitary protocols probably also next year. So the Deutscher Motor Sport Bund (DMSB, the German ASN) has introduced the official role of a licensed sanitary officer appointed by the respective organiser. His tasks include participating in drawing up the sanitary protocol, ensuring a smooth functioning of the event from a sanitary point of view and supporting the cooperation with relevant authorities. Marius Hassheider, who has been co-managing the Uphöfener Berg paddock in the past, will take on this important role for MSC Osnabrück and for the Int. 53rd Hill Climb Race Osnabrück.


German hill climb driver Christian Triebstein died in a traffic accident

Very sad news from the German hill climb scene: 32-year-old Christian Triebstein, 2019 vice champion in the DMSB hill climb cup for competition cars, died in a tragic traffic accident on 18 August as a passenger. Last year the ambitious young driver participated in the Int. Osnabrück Hill Climb Race with his Dallara F302 Opel Formula 3. The next step in his career, supported as always by his grandfather Günter, was going to be taken in a PRC FPR 12 powered by a 3 litre Nissan engine. Hill climbers are mourning a friendly, talented colleague. MSC Osnabrück would like to express its deepest sympathy to his family.


A visit to a quiet Uphöfener Berg

Normally, the preparations for the Int. 53rd Hill Climb Race Osnabrück on the first weekend of August would have been almost done. The teams would have moved into their paddock spots. The track would have been set up and the spectator areas would have been ready. The Covid-19 pandemic had put paid to all of that this year. A few days before what was going to be the date of the first start, Mayor Marc Schewski, Clerk of the course Michael Schrey, Chairman of the organising committee Bernd Stegmann and a few media representatives met near the start line of the race, in an unusually idyllic and quiet atmosphere. Everyone agreed, although not without a certain wistfulness, that the decision not to host a hill climb race this year – for the first time in more than half a century – had been the right one. However, the organisers are determined to get ready to present a top-line event again in 2021.

FIA Int. Hill Climb Cup postponed to 2021

In light of the current coronavirus crisis the FIA Hill Climb Commission has cancelled the FIA Int. Hill Climb Cup 2020. Three of five events have already been cancelled at this point, so that there is no longer a sound basis for competition. Nor will there be a FIA European Hill Climb Championship this year. The FIA will hold the two prestigious competitions again in 2021.


Int. 53rd ADAC Hill Climb Race Osnabrück rescheduled to 7–8 August 2021

To help its many fans and friends with their planning, MSC Osnabrück has already registered the new date for the 53rd edition of its popular event with the associations concerned, ie the Deutscher Motor Sport Bund (DMSB) and the FIA. After this year’s enforced break due to the coronavirus crisis, top class hill climb racing accompanied by a packed entertainment bill will return to Uphöfener Berg on 7-8 August 2021. Further information will follow shortly.
