This weekend is another one of those bucket list times for me. Tomorrow morning, way too early, I am boarding a plane and heading to Colorado to cover the Pike’s Peak International Hill Climb. Yup, I’m heading to the Race to the Clouds! Gonna be epic.
I’ll be there with the nice folks from Mitsubishi to learn about their new electric racer. It will be very interesting to see how this Electric Modified class performs.
To get myself a little bit fired up, I thought I would delve into the wayback machine and bring up the classic Climb Dance video that features rally legend Ari Vatanen’s record run up the hill in 1985, flying the wicked Peugeot 405. I still love the bug splat!
Notice that the road is still mostly gravel at this point. In recent years it has been paved to prevent erosion and make the Sierra Club happy.
