2011 Pikes Peak International Hill Climb June 26th
Footage from the 89th Pike's Peak International Hill Climb on Saturday, June 26h, 2011. This spot is between Ski Area and Glen Cove at 10,900 Feet. This year Monster Tajima broke the 10 minute barrier with a time of 9:51. Also 2011 was the last year for a dirt and tarmac track. In 2012 the entire track will be tarmac. Be sure and check out my videos from fan fest and the decent of the racers and subscribe for more rally videos!! Overview of Pike's Peak from Pike's Peak official website- http://www.usacracing.com/ppihc/about/overview The race is run on a 12.42 mile course with 156 turns that begins at 9,390 feet and finishes at the 14,110 foot summit of America's Mountain; Pikes Peak! As the drivers climb toward the summit, the thin air slows reflexes and saps muscle strength. The thin air also robs engines of 30% of their power at the summit. Competitors and vehicles must be in top shape simply to finish...let alone win! This year the race has 11 classes and features a variety of automotive, semi truck, exhibition, open wheel, super stock car, pro truck and motorcycle classes with a field approaching 200 competitors.
Pikes Peak Hillclimb (highlights), 1995,
Does anyone else miss it when it was dirt? Really bad weather that year, they moved the finish line down the mountain from the summit to Devil's Playground. Most folks got under 10min that year. since the course was a lil' short. There is an Unser, a couple of Dallenbachs, and a Mears. Seems appropriate, considering what I'd heard of racing "families" back then. I also see Jeff Zwart dragging a 911 up the hill. Tajima and Millen are there, too.
Gravelrama 2010 #6 Hill Climb
Gravelrama 40 was held August 25-30 this year in Cleves, Ohio outside of Cincinnati. The East Coast 4 Wheel Drive Association event includes rock crawling, bracket sand drag racing, class sand drag racing, uphill drag racing, pea gravel hill climb, obstacle course, and even a parade through town. The hill climb is a fan favorite and didn't disappoint this year with well over two hundred runs.
