Demonic, a raucous rage (Autoblog)

Watch Paul Dallenbach use 1,400 HP to race up Pikes Peak

Posted Jun 21st 2012 1:55PM

Paul Dallenbach has been practicing for the upcoming Pikes Peak International Hill Climb in an Unlimited-class competitor that looks like it drove straight out of Wacky Races, powered by a 1,400-horsepowerChevrolet engine from Banks Power.

Before one run up the lower slopes, the crew affixed cameras all over the race car, and the resulting video is a good demonstration of the speed, the sound and the shakes a driver needs to master over the 20 kilometers (12.42 miles) and 160 turns of the Pikes Peak Hill Climb. It is also the only racing video we've seen to feature a flying camera and an ant.

Click here to watch, and you'll want to mind the volume.
