Am I excited for one of the most successful racecar drivers in history to whip one of the fastest racecars ever built up one of the most demanding race courses in the world? In a word, yes.
This is 9-times-world-champion and possible robot Sebastian Loeb in his grinning 875-horsepower, 875-kilo Peugeot 208 T16 Pikes Peak car. I'd heard that it could make the 0-60 mph run in 1.8 seconds and the 0-149 mph run in 7.0 seconds. Now that this video popped up on Axis of Oversteer, I finally get to see that performance in action.
