I am trying to find out more about the Campionato svizzero, the Swiss Championship that ran in the 1960s and 1970s. I believe it started in 1964 and it runs on in some form until today. It is, or certainly was, a mixture of Slalom events (much like British Sprint events, I think), Hill Climbs and circuit events in Germany.

The early seasons saw a few interesting ex-F1 cars and I'm trying to compile results for the seasons up to the mid-1970s. In an old copy of La Stagione Automobilistica, I have found results for 1969 but can anyone post up a list of events for other seasons?

Living in switzerland, but I don't know so much (sorry nothing) about those events: But the title seemed to be swiss italian iniciated?

And inSt. Ursanne there is every year a very popular Hillclimb event with a mixture of many different cars. May you try a search engine to find more about St. Ursanne +Hillclimb (Bergrennen in German). St. Ursanne is swiss french, some 50 km from me.
Kandersteg and Mollis are also popular, but I think there is no race any longer. Molis is some 20 km from the famous Klausenrennen on the Klausenpass. But it's not the same hill, the Kerenzerberg.

Allen: the Swiss Championship goes back further than you think. If you remember, we spent a long time last year trying to pin down a picture of the MBM which dated back to 1961. In post 39 of this thread Sat gave us the results of a Swiss Championship race at Hockenheim. :)
