European hill climbing is pretty underrated, if you ask us. Take any road that goes uphill that presents enough corners to be interesting to both drivers and spectators, occasionally put some objects in the way to make chicanes, and race the clock…cheap, easy to lay out, and with plenty of mountainous roads to be found in Continental Europe easy to organize. The Central European country of Slovenia has plenty of pre-mountainous and mountainous roads that easily become impromptu race courses. Set against lush backdrops, the sounds of pressurized mills screaming under load becomes intoxicating, the siren song of sorts. But that rude clanging noise of race machine against Armco barrier is more than enough of a rude jolt to bring you out of your deep sleep and into reality. From the little Yugo that tried too hard to the open-wheel screamers that master the course, the Ilirska-Bistrica hill climb is an auditory guilty pleasure. Click play below to enjoy!
