Palo Blanco Hillclimb Posponed yet again

Javier Afonso 8 Subida Palo Blanco 2020

After the postponements suffered in March, due to the restrictions caused by the incidence of coronavirus on the island then, the event is postponed again. 

The ninth edition of the Palo Blanco Hillclimb, reintroduced in 2019, after not having been held regularly for 30 years, since 1989 (held once, in 2002), was scheduled for 27 March (after being moved from 6 March) and was then programmed for 23 and 24 July. 

However, after a thorough analysis of all the data and recommendations provided by the regional Administration, and in agreement with the Automobile Federation of Santa Cruz de Tenerife and Los Realejos Council, the Escudería Daute Realejos has taken the decision to postpone the ninth edition of the Palo Blanco Hillclimb again. It is a painful, extraordinary measure, the result of the unprecedented situation. As soon as possible, the new date chosen for the celebration of the long-awaited event will be made public.
