Lincoln, NH — Officials with the Sports Car Club of New Hampshire, organizers of the 2021 Subaru Mt. Washington Hillclimb presented by Yokohama Tire planned for August 13-15, 2021 at the Mt. Washington Auto Road in Gorham, NH, are proud to announce that New Hampshire Governor Chris Sununu has accepted an invitation to serve as the Grand Marshal of this year’s Climb to the Clouds.

“We’re truly honored that Governor Sununu will be joining us at this year’s Subaru Mt. Washington Hillclimb presented by Yokohama Tire on Sunday, August 15th”, stated Howard Roundy, Event Director of this year’s historic Climb to the Clouds Hillclimb. “The Governor has always been a strong advocate of outdoor recreation, as well as the Tourism industry. Given that this event has drawn spectators, competitors and sponsors from across the United States and other countries to northern New Hampshire since 1904, it’s a wonderful opportunity to have Governor Sununu join us this year to not only welcome everyone to North America’s oldest motorsports Hillclimb, but to take in the racing excitement as well.”

The 2021 Subaru Mt. Washington Hillclimb presented by Yokohama Tire will serve as a 3-day motorsports festival filled with a variety of motorsports-oriented activities for all ages including a vendor and food truck area along with a beer truck, historic car displays, an autograph session with a number of the event’s top racers capped off by the return of North America’s oldest motorsports Hillclimb along the 7.6 mile Mt. Washington Auto Road on Sunday, August 15, 2021.

This year’s impressive field of drivers will feature 80 of the most skilled and daring athletes from across North America representing the disciplines of sportscar racing, endurance, circle track and hillclimb racing as well as rally racing. Topping the list will be 5-time United States Rally Champion and current Mt. Washington Hillclimb record holder, Travis Pastrana from Annapolis, MD. Pastrana set a blistering fast time of 5 minutes, 44.72 seconds driving for Subaru Motorsports USA at the 2017 Subaru Mt. Washington Hillclimb. Pastrana is hoping to set another overall record time this year by driving a brand new purpose-built 862hp Subaru-backed WRX STI built by Vermont SportsCar in Milton, VT specifically for this event.
