    Damn, I would love to go for a ride along but, I fear I would crash hard if that was me.

    I love the 10 MPH sign, I can't image flying around turns like that with no guard rail.

    It's being said he blew both rear tires around the 8 minute mark... which makes him an even more crazy bastard.

    i really dont think that he lost two tires accelerationltraction is still to great. Also if you drove on flats like that for 4min they would have shreaded and you would have heard them hitting the car

    B does this inspire you to go buy a genesis now? We all know you want one :wacko:


    My kudos have to go to Mr. Bruce Canepa. for piloting his 1999 Kenworth Tandem axle Semi up the hill in just over 13sec.

    Rhys Millen holds a few records on that hill

    And looking at the records The Unser family has been stiring up trouble on that hill since the 20s PPIHC Content Page
