Undoubtedly "road race". AFAIK, Switzerland has a ban on circuit racing, which has been the case for decades. To circumvent this there are several "Hill Climb" venues on closed roads. Typically a UK speed hill climb takes place in the grounds of a stately home on the adapted drive way (Google: Preston, Wiscombe Park, Shelsey Walsh etc.) and a "run" is usually under 60s. Swiss hill climbs are usually much longer and go up mountains.

Cheers Geoff

Hi SuzukiDave

I was talking about road race as Geoff wrote already. It goes up the mountains. For example have a look at the following pictures

or some extracts especially for Suzuki community

Here is a YouTube video of a RG500, typical of a continental speed hill climb.

Or have a look at the following video (drivers view)

It's from a training session of a Honda CB450 (same event as the pictures above)
