Sights From The Okemo Hillclimb
So far?? I'm VERY slow in comparison to the other vehicles. But that's what happens when you put a 3900 lb. vehicle pushed uphill by only 160 or so HP against vehicles half the weight and twice the power.
None the less, I am in 49th out of 51 entries. One Subaru STi had his hood come off at speed putting him out of competition and Retro-Runner is faster so far than one of the motorcycle entries.
Most importantly I've made both my possible runs whereas numerous cars have had at a DNF or DNS. Additionally Retro-Runner and myself are still in one piece. So far the weekend has been a great success!
