One of the drivers’ favorite cars up the Mt. Washington Hill Climb this year was Mikko Kataja’s 4AGE Toyota Starlet shipped over from Finland wailing up the hill at 11,000 RPM. We had no idea how the narrow, frost-heaved road didn’t buck him straight off the mountain. Watching the onboard now, you can see it nearly…
I’ll be honest, I was genuinely scared to be the navigator for Bill Petrow’s Broken Motorsports Nissan 240SX, racing in the Mount Washington Hill Climb. And then my worst fear was realized. Well, not my worst fear. Nobody died. But we did do a 360 spin off of the mountain.
I watch a lot of onboard videos, but every once in a while, I just kind of stare at one in awe. The way this Datsun 240Z eats up mileage at this year’s Mt. Washington Hillclimb just completely broke my brain.
This might be the gnarliest thing that Travis Pastrana has ever done. The Mount Washington Hillclimb runs up one of the steepest, narrowest, bumpiest roads in the country, next to thousand foot drops. Pastrana broke his own record with a 5:44 run, half off the mountain itself.
