The 16th and Last Domain Hillclimb

CMI’s Submission to Council

CAMS Supporting Letter to Council

We regret to announce that, unfortunately, this year’s CMI Domain Hillclimb will be the 16th and last.

Following our joint submission to council with CAMS (see links above) in May, Council Parks and Amenities staff working on the Queens Domain Summit redevelopment drafted a proposed amendment to the masterplan to allow for us to continue using the venue. This included provision for annual access to the loop at the top, and using bolt down (removable) speed bumps. This would have been a great outcome and we thank those involved for their recognition of our connection with the Domain.

However, we were recently advised that, at the full council meeting on 20 August, aldermen unanimously voted against the amendment made to accommodate our event, and extended this further to not approving any future motor sport events on the Domain.

We are disappointed at this outcome after 15 very successful years of our event, and before that, motorsport having been enjoyed at the Domain ever since the 1950s.

We hope to see as many of you as possible at the final Domain Hillclimb as competitors and officials in 3 weeks’ time, on Sunday 21st of October 2018.
