Experience

 

Prior to his participation in hillclimbs, Nick Wheelock had attended a few driving schools and had competed in autocross events. These experiences proved helpful as preparation.

 

Wheelock was introduced to the hillclimb experience by his friends. After working events and watching his friends participate, Wheelock entered his first race – Mt. Philo in Charlotte, Vermont. He fell in love with the events and developed a passion for the speed. He has been hooked ever since.

 

Why choose hillclimbing? “It’s a lot of fun,” explained Wheelock. “It’s a twisting, winding road, and you don’t have to worry about other traffic. Everybody likes to go driving through the mountain roads on a sunny day, and this just gives you the opportunity to do it.”
