I went to Pikes Peak this year, and wondered why we never saw any Formula cars on the hillclimb. Watching Liber Federico, the winner of the 2013 Cividale Castelmonte Hillclimb, these cars are clearly freaking awesome!
Skip to 1:50. This guy is my hero.
Check out 3:58, where you see the temporary chicanes that they put on the course. Does anyone know anything more about hillclimbs? Do the drivers get to walk the course at all prior to the event? (Or I guess you could just arrive a few days prior and drive up in a road car, eh?)
