You'd likely get a kick out of the Pikes Peak race...

Yeah, I'm gonna have to second the "screw that" statement...I'd be pissing my pants all the way up...especially on those close-to-the-edge bends...uh, no.

...but damn, that thing is fast!

Yeah Tord, there's no guard rails on PP. It wasn't as fast, but it's all dirt/gravel so it's about the same if not harder to stay on course and still go as fast as the driver was. The Audi R8 is just damn fast, but it's a lemans-type race supercar. The peugot is just a rally car.

Theres tons of events that do hill climbs in the usa... in oregon theres the wmc that does a hill climb once a year. Its really fun but very dangerous.... usually have to have a rollbar or cage to do it.

Here is a video of my friend doing the wmc hill climb in his old 06 subaru sti with 500hp. Not as cool as the audi or peugot rally car but this is also a amatur event for hobbies... not professional drivers.

hmmm.... works for me. Goto google video search and put "Hill climb run 4" or "Brewpubbeaver"... should be the first one on the list.
