Climb Dance

In light of our last post on Pikes Peak’s ‘Race to the Clouds’, I think everyone should see the video below. If you like C’était un rendez-vous you will love this. It is pure motoring cinematography at its best. Climb Dance is a short film showing Finnish rally driver Ari Vatanen setting a record time in a highly modified four-wheel drive, all-wheel steering Peugeot 405 Turbo 16 GR at the 1988 Pikes Peak International Hillclimb. If you like 90 degree drifts with the back wheels hanging off the edge of a mountain check this as the Pug slithers up the mountain like a wily French snake.
