I like E30s. Chicken likes E30s. This was an absurdly fast E30 at Pikes Peak.
Yet it still beats the air into submission.
Here we see the noble Fluffy Bunny—species Puffalumpus Urungus—perched atop a wing. This particular Fluffy Bunny has a wild crown of white yarn upon her head and loves to nest in the wings, ducts and crannies of parked race cars, and sometimes in back seats of track cars.
This is actually fine. Really fine. Crazy stupid fine.
Some cool cars to checkout prior to them falling down a mountain, maybe.
Or if you’d rather see some carnage...
Maybe bunny, too.
This was not how I wanted this trip to start.
And unholy shit it’s quick. And beautiful. And advanced.
Here, have a six-motor car for 6 AM.
I really need an E30.
Just a handful of my favorite shots from the hillclimb. These were all taken on a crappy 18-55mm lens, so don’t expect anything too special. We were spectating at Cove Creek, at about 12,000 feet above sea level, *just* below the tree line.
Few bikes can grab my attention like the Ronin Motorworks 47, and their Pikes Peak race bike is possibly one of the most beautiful things I’ve ever seen. Why anyone would want to risk tossing this thing off a cliff is beyond me.
From this video, if anyone’s curious.
Thanks to all the responses, we have a good list of tracks that Opponauts want copies of for their very own. Most are fairly obvious, others less so.
