The 2021 Repco 'King of the Hill' returned to Ararat's One Tree Hill November 27 and 28.
The hill climb was the first in Ararat since November 2019 due to COVID-19 restrictions.
Ararat Motor Club vice president Chris Harwood said the event ran smoothly, in a perfect return to the course.
"75 competitors from all over Victoria and South Australia complied with state government requirements in place to have a safe and enjoyable hill climb," he said.
"Conditions were perfect on both days with competitors getting three runs each day against the clock on the longest hill climb in Victoria."
The 2021 hill climb saw a new 'King of the Hill' crowned at One Tree Hill.
"When long-time 'King of the Hill' Kevin Mackrell in his Datsun 260z AWD V8 broke his rear differential on his first run the title was up for grabs," Harwood said.
"Early on Glenn Latter (Mazda RX7) and Damien Brand (Subaru STi) were very quick but not as quick as Mirko Grbic in his Mitsubishi Evo, who ended with a blistering 51.91 seconds to claim the 'King of the Hill'."

"With vehicles from standard Hyundai Excels and Holden Commodores to 4wd V8 Datsun and Corvette powered VK commodore to Minis and Subaru WRXs competing there was plenty to see," he said.
