Paulaweybridge has a lot of promise if they can keep it on the circuit!
Hi Guys,

Well I will now be going to the USA at the end of April for 9 weeks and Johanna and I are going to ride the Durango to Silverton railroad this time. She's been on it many times as she is relatively local.

I don't want to take that road again, totally scary ..

So if we have time, will try and drive up the Pikes Peak course.

Pikes Peak will be under snow in February. At the peak they get around 500-600 inches of snow a year.

There will be two RS200's in the Unlimited class this year.

The Doran driven, Monster backed car in your link, plus the Mark Rennison driven Mach 2 Racing car is back as well!

Another strong time attack build that plans to take top honors at Pike's Peak

When this is built it surely will surely be one of the top contenders... it will retain the AWD, produce in excess of 850 hp and will weigh less than 1000 kg and have downforce approaching F1 levels

Just curious, I don't know the Pikes Peaks course well but now that it's been fully paved, why isn't anyone taking it on in a big single seater is is it still more suited to these tricked out closed cars?

I've thought the same myself, starting with an ex-Indy or Champ car would seem to give you a great base to add aero to bring up the high altitude downforce. Looked like that had been Dallenbach's inspiration for his older cars. But at the rate they are announcing new and varying chassis it just seems like a matter of time before someone tries, unless AWD systems are too important in case of lowfog and a damp/wet surface.

A non AWD car would struggle to put big power down after all those hairpins, by the time you gain traction you'd be at the next.

I wouldn't mind betting a standard rallycross car would be quicker than most 2wd single seaters or sports protoypes, it's not like those European hillclimb stages with quick corners and long straights.

The UK Hillclimbs are twisty and it's mainly acceleration so traction is key. Lots of those guys use traction control too. I don't know but someone might be missing a trick?

The Mach 2 team made a few posts over on Pistonheads (around the time the Doran RS200 was first revealed at Autosport) indicatng that they would be at the Peak this year.

Fingers crossed they make it this year and have a good stab at the climb!

Palatov look like taking up the challenge

this is a single seater designed to maintain a minimum of 500 hp throughout the full course run... it has a paddle operated sequential transmission, weighs bellow 1000 lbs and has all wheel drive... in it's previous lower powered configuration it was only 1.5s off the pace of a formula atlantic car

Weight: 1000 lbs (435 kg)
Engine: Hartley H2 Turbo
HP: 500 hp (throughout full course)
Power to Weight: 700hp/ton
Transmission: Hewland Sequential

the driver will be David Donner... perhaps they could also bring over a more powerful version of their electric racecar conversion

I love this course, its completely nuts.. although no longer gravel.. but still not exactly easy to go up fast

This Palatov car is certainly very fast, I'm sure they could break 10mins
