The Palo Blanco Hillclimb raises the curtain on the 2022 rally season in Tenerife

From the Palo Blanco Hillclimb 2021

The Palo Blanco Hillclimb, scheduled for March 4 and 5 in the municipality of Los Realejos, kicks off the rally calendar in 2022 and this year celebrates its first decade.

The TF-326 road in Palo Blanco will once again be the scene of the event, with two official passes on a 5.52-kilometre route. Throughout the afternoon of March 4, technical verifications are expected in the El Llano car park. On Saturday, March 5 the road will be closed at 07:30 am, with the training round starting at 09:00 am, with the two official rounds scheduled at 11:00 am and 1:15 pm, respectively, concluding with the delivery of trophies at 4:00 pm in the Plaza Nuestra Señora de los Dolores, in Palo Blanco.

Important for the spectators, but even more so for the drivers, is the AEMET weather forecast that announces very low temperatures and a 90 percent chance of rain during the race schedule, so tire selection and management will be essential.

Celestino Díaz, president of the Escudería Daute Realejos, expressed his satisfaction at the celebration of the first ten years of the Palo Blanco Hillclimb, "a long road that we would not have been able to travel without the determined support of the Cabildo de Tenerife and Los Realejos City Council". Díaz thanks the support received in each edition from the drivers, sponsors, fans and the media, while encouraging them to continue "putting their shoulders to the wheel" to guarantee the survival of the race in the chicharrero motor calendar.
