Pikes Peak | ride-a-long
There are infamous tracks that challenge drivers with their technical turns such as Laguna Seca’s corkscrew and Tsukuba’s inside hairpin (help Japan).
Then there are tracks that seem to be built by gods that take drivers with concrete concentration and iron guts to drive at limit. These tracks have claimed their share of cars and drivers such as Nurburgring (save the ring) and Pikes Peak.
Those of you that know me know I’m a nerd for in-car cams. I love studying the lines, steering angles, shifting and such. But this is not about me, this is about Jeff Zwart and his 911 GT3 Cup Car as they broke the Time Attack 2WD class record at Pike’s Peak on June 23, 2010. Well broke is an understatement, more like shattered it by 38 seconds.
The video went viral and has been talked about over and over. On one of my numerous times looking at it, I told myself that I had to share it with all of you.
So here it is, courtesy of the Porsche Club of America. So maximize the video, sit down, buckle up and get ready for one crazy ride.
