The fifth and last round of the Enemed Hillclimb National Championship was organised on Sunday 8th November at Mtahleb, limits of Rabat.

The event was organised by Island Car Club. Both the Hillclimb Championship and the Island Car Club have the longest history in the local motorsport scene.

Around 30 cars competed in the various classes and groups that make this championship suitable for every driver and every car. Charles Cutajar on his Escort Mk1 won the class for rear-wheel-drive cars. Didier Bugeja on his Peugeot 106 won the class for front-wheel-drive cars. Fabio Baldacchino on his formula racing car finished as the overall winner followed by Darren Camilleri in second place and Mauro Portelli in third. Fabio Baldacchino raced the hill in 61.31 seconds.

All local hillclimb fans noticed the driving capabilities of Nicky Gauci. This was the first time that Gauci tried his luck in Hillclimbing although he has a lot of experience in karting, both locally and abroad. Gauci finished the day in fifth place.
