Don’t watch this if you have the fear of heights. The start line for a Pikes Peak International Hill Climb is 9,390 feet above sea level, and a finish line is at the elevation of 14,115 feet.
The road between the two is windy, and often without any protective barrier between you and sheer drops down a mountain. Really, it is the perfect place for an 850-horsepower Corvette Z06 time attack car.
That was friend-of-R&T Robb Holland’s ride of choice and for this year’s Hill Climb where he ran the 10:55.166, a time that earned him the fourth-place finish in class.
That is also quicker than any other Corvette in Pikes Peak history.
Holland’s Corvette actually started life as the salvage-titled Z06 that was turned into the time-attack monster.
You can read all about the build in the series of Jalopnik articles written by Holland.
You have got to give credit to Robb Holland and everyone else that races at Pikes Peak—it’s the road that would be scary at 25 mph, let alone 125.
