Only 5 more months, then the legendary 100 km long event will take place for the 19,99th time Pikes Peak Hill Climb in the mountains of Colorado (USA) with 156 corners and an average gradient of 7,2 percent. It is considered one of the toughest and most extreme motorsport events ever and this time it seems that a lot of people are taking part. Because Michael Whiddett (a.k.a. "Mad Mike") has signed up and wants to go with a heavily tuned Mazda 3 dare to try. The vehicle is a monster with Wankel engine and more than 1.200 hp.

For us, the biggest disadvantage of the vehicle. all wheel drive might be the better choice for a performance of a Bugatti Veyron Super Sport. However, the complete route paved for several years what the Power unit naturally benefits.
