Something for the weekend: Arona Hillclimb



We often moan that there's not enough notice of events in Tenerife; that the local town halls don't publicise them ... and then they do, but it doesn't exactly help. Sigh!

Both Arona town hall and the tourism authorities published information some time ago (it's probably since been changed, but not been updated) that the Subida Arona - La Escalona (Arona - La Escalona Hillclimb) was taking place last weekend. This was picked up by other sources and, to be fair, it's hard to see why one would doubt them on face value.

But then, you can never take anything at face value when it comes to Tenerife!

However, crucially, the racing team website (event timetable PDF) and the rally federation in Tenerife (2018 rally calendar PDF) both list the event as taking place on Saturday 20 October 2018 and this date was echoed in September by the motor sport press.
