    Being a fan of both Sebastien Loeb and Pikes Peak, I am very much looking forward to this:

    Climb Dance II?

    That is one of my favourite clips on youtube. Fearless driving.

    Peugeot has revealed the specs for its new challenger, and it’s almost a short wheelbase 908 LMP…

    In fact, calling it a 208 seems a bit pointless. Still awesome, though it is now a very different event without the gravel.

    Oh no, what a disappointment. They’ve tarmac’d the road…

    What a complete pansy!

    On a serious note, this is typical of todays PR driven world: Take something heroic and remake it with a better budget and no-one will notice that it completely misses the point as long as it’s all shiny. And before you show the deed you drip feed your audience so that by the time you finally get to the actual even it has no impact whatsoever. In the old days it would have taken your breath away not only by its audacity but also because it would have been right out of the blue.

    I’m afraid I’m just “meh” over this now. Seriously, was there not another spectacular unmade road somewhere where they could have equalled the daring? Ah, but then they wouldn’t have had the Pikes Peak ‘brand equity’ to splash all over their PR. I’m sure Mr L will drive spectacularly, but meh, just meh.
