Race To The Clouds

From the first race, an upset victory by Rea Lentz while driving a homemade car, to Sebastien Loeb’s record smashing run in 2013, “Race to the Clouds ™ 100 Years in the Making” is a 90-minute documentary film capturing the history of America’s second oldest auto race, The Broadmoor Pikes Peak International Hill Climb.

Climbkhana TWO launches next Monday - so I’m looking back at my favorite moments from the first Climbkhana film we made with @ToyoTires. This is one of my faves: "Evo Corner", of course. One of the wildest moments I’ve ever had in a racecar - I put a LOT of faith in those R888R tires at that moment! Check out the Climbkhana TWO trailer by clicking the link in my bio! #Climbkhana #HoonicornV2 #twinturbosonmeth
