Klausen Hill Climb, Switzerland

Track Guide

Home of the legendary Klausen Run (Klausenrennen), pre-war hill climb, this 21.5 kilometer Alpine pass is now home to the memorial events, held every four years.

The hillclimb is split into two parts for memorial events, with a break along the Alpine valley. These on-board pictures were taken a few days before the 2006 event and can only give a flavour of this awesome venue and superb scenery.
