Hold on and grab the wheel. These videos show the future from the mountains to the plains. And join folks like Dennis Palatov to the Electric Lady herself, Joan Michelson. What an electric rush!
The Pikes Peak International Hill Climb (PPIHC), also known as The Race to the Clouds, is an annual automobile hill climb to the summit of Pikes Peak in Colorado, USA. The track measures 12.42 miles (19.99 km) and has over 156 turns, climbing 4,720 ft (1,440 m) from the start at Mile 7 on Pikes Peak Highway, to the finish at 14,115 ft (4,302 m), on grades averaging 7.2%. It used to consist of both gravel and paved sections, but as of August 2011, the highway is fully paved; as a result, all subsequent events will be run on asphalt from start to finish.
Stay tuned to the progress of Dennis Palatov, his team and vehicles of the future happening now! And now, here is Joan Michelson of Electric Ladies with Betsy Rosenberg!
