The FIA Int. Hill Climb Cup 2021 calendar

The FIA Int. Hill Climb Cup 2021 will comprise four events: Bieszczadski in Poland on 21-23 May, the iconic, 18 km long Trento-Bondone track in northern Italy on 2-4 July, the Lučine hill climb in Slovenia on 6-8 August, and finally the Int. 53rd ADAC Hill Climb Race Osnabrück in northern Germany on 20-22 August. The European-level hill climb season 2020 having fallen almost totally flat due to the Covid-19 pandemic, it will be exciting to see which drivers in the various categories will accept the challenge next year. The FIA has recently published not only the calendar but also the detailed regulations for organisers, officials and drivers. Before the first car leaves the start line at Uphöfener Berg, the organisers will have to tackle a myriad of administrative tasks in several languages, liaising closely with the FIA Hill Climb Department in Geneva (Switzerland).


Fast internet access thanks to Vodafone Germany in cooperation with SYSCON

From next year on, internet access at the Int. Hill Climb Race Osnabrück should improve significantly. With the help of Dr Stefan Muhle, State Secretary in the Lower Saxony Ministry of Economics, and Christiane Rottmann, Deputy District Administrator, MSC Osnabrück chairman of the organising committee Bernd Stegmann and competition secretary Michael Lippke have secured a commitment from Vodafone Germany to provide an internet connection for the 2021 event with both 4G|LTE and the new fast 5G standard. The ultimate goal is to provide the event area and thus also the village of Uphöfen with fast internet access on a permanent basis as soon as possible. In a first instance, this will benefit all smartphone and tablet users with a Vodafone contract or Vodafone GIGA cubes which provide WiFi access via a mobile phone connection. With the help of SYSCON, who specialise inter alia in providing WiFi components in larger outdoor areas, customers of other mobile phone providers will also be able to get fast internet access. The cooperation with Vodafone Germany and SYSCON will thus open up completely new digital possibilities for the hill climb race in the future.


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.
