Monster Tajima's Pike Peak run
« on: August 27, 2011, 01:59:31 AM »
I know it is a big add for GoPro, but it's a pretty good vid off Pikes Peak.
Monster has raced down here a few times and comes across as a pretty funny guy in his broken english.
1000+ Hp up that hill is impressive.

Pretty cool.I saw one from years ago a while back of two flat trackers on the dirt passing back and forth on the edge of doom.Scary stuff :o
I'd rather a full bottle in front of me than a full frontal lobotomy.

Ari Vatanen is my all time favorite rally driver.
I saw him as a kid win the Rally of NZ in a BDA Escort which didn't have a single straight panel left on it.
The man was nuts. ;D

The mechanic who fixed some of my bmw's ills was a rallyist back in oz, he was a finn. His name is erkki, but everyone called him eric. Vehicle of choice was a subaru STI as a modern but he always had a ford escort or two around. (mk1-2, none of the front wheel drive american crap you guys here get)

HE was also called Ari by a few. I asked, is it cos he is a great rally driver? nah, it is cos he has f*cked as many escorts as ari.

When I left oz he was on 17 rollovers and counting.
