2020 Ultra Low-Key Hillclimb Series Overall Results

photo
Done!. (2020 Gregory P. Smith photo)

Thanks to our great volunteers for making this series succeed: to Ed Miller for fact-checking and editing; to a slew of collaborators on the photo albums; to our forebears - founder Kevin Michael Winterfield, organizing, programming, design, and mathematical genius Dan Connelly; to yours truly (I humbly say) for the website work and scoring; and especially to Andy Crews for being the driving force behind the series and putting it all together!

And most of all to all the participants, without whom this would all be a figment of our imagination.

Report

Another successful Low-Key season has ended, if a rather strange one. The special Covid ITT format over several days worked remarkably well. Andy revived Low-Key in 2018, and we got off to a slow but cozy start with a small group, and in this improbable year of 2020, Low-Key turned out a total of 154 starters!

A big "Congratulations!" to everyone who participated!

Until Montebello 2021, everybody please stay safe and go get 'em!
