    Lol the opposition has some great vehicles though. Check this out:

    A truck!!!
  4. Looks like the ill-fated Group-S lives on...
    Shame it's now ALL tar now though. :(
    I wonder if anyone will be showing up with an F-3 car...:geek:
  5. That's an interesting point actually... I remember reading about Pikes Peak in the 50s and 60s, when teams would just bring Indycars fitted with dirt tyres and race them. Are there any open-wheelers on this year's entry list?
  6. At the last few runnings of the Bulahdelah Hill Climbs we've had a few ex-Australian F3 cars turn up & those things BLITZ!
    Im surprised no-one is doing the same at PP...
    Or if they are, that we haven't heard more about them...
    But then there wouldn't be any huge factory support like a manufacturer can put behind them, including promo's like Peugeot is doing with Loeb...
  7. Pic of the Peugeot's engine!

  9. Hoping some good spectator footage of his run shows up. Was watching redbull's stream earlier and it was bad. Don't know if they changed up the coverage for later classes, but when I was watching it was 2 guys at a desk that seemed like they just found out this morning they'd be casting. And one guy at the finish area that needed to check his clipboard to make sure they were in Colorado.
  10. Hardly surprising that Loeb won unlimited with the amount of money that was poured in by Redbull & Peugeot....
    What surprises me is that if Loeb is such an expert in the dirt, after all WRC IS his background, then why wait until Pikes Peak was entirely sealed before hitting the slopes, surely he should've proved his mettle before the beast was tamed?
    Pikes in my mind is like Bathurst, changed & will never be the same again now...:(
