Record Breaking Run at Pikes Peak 2011



This is the first Pikes Peak run under 10 minutes, which also shattered the previous record by over 10 seconds. Watching the first few seconds from the run reminded me of those car commercials where the advertiser speeds up the footage to "convince" you the car is really fast. "Watch how the Mercedes C class would look at 160 mph if it was going FOUR times faster!!!" Except this run is for real. Totally insane driving and fantastic car control!! And those spectators are just as insane standing only a couple of feet from a car drifting at triple-digit speeds on loose surface!

  1. WOW - the driving in this video was just amazing.

    However I really don't get the spectators as you mentioned. Look at the guy in the left at 7:31 or the whole bunch of people on the right 7:49.
