Ecce Homo comes from Latin and means something like “stride on man” or “come on, man”. So tonight it’s time for the Come On Man Hill Climb from Sternberk, Czechia. The course is a combination of local road 44424 and main road 46. At the top of the hill is the Ecce Homo statue of Jesus carrying the cross to Golgotha.
Tonight the Virtual European Hill Climb Championship will visit these famous roads which were used to racing for the first time all the way back in 1905. Today the hill climb course is used twice a year with the regular race held the first weekend in June and a historic hill climb at the start of autumn.
The current course record is held by Italian driver Merli Christian in his Osella FA30 EVO Zytek LRM with a time of 2:39.88. Will any of the drivers get close to that tonight?
Well, tune in on YouTube or Facebook tonight from 21:30 CEST and we will provide you with action and fast cars.
