Its not Locost, but it IS racing. The 10 minute barrier at Pikes peak has been broken, See video; http://www.autoweek.com/article/2011062 ... /110629864
I got the info off of this HAMB thread, http://www.jalopyjournal.com/forum/show ... p?t=603414
Enjoy, Mikey B

I was surprised how tall the point of view is in that video. It's just alien looking to be covering road that fast in something that's not a road racer...

Check out at about 8:05, he drops a wheel, goes sideways and crosses most of the road straightening it out and almost hits a haybale on the outside.

I also note from a post in the thread pointed to that Modernbeat, one of our posters, crewed for his girlfriend and she is only the second women to ever win a class! There's a picture of her going thru a turn sideways. Congrats to Modernbeat for all the hard work and his excellent taste in girlfriends!
:cheers:

Thanks for the pointer, dodgedartgt...
