Pikes Peak is known as the one of the greatest hill climb circuits on the planet, with a treacherous 156 corners over the course of its 19.9km (12.42 mile) of pavement. While most of us will never get a chance to drive the course at breakneck speeds, that doesn’t mean you can’t experience it from the comfort of your laptop. This amazing footage was captured from inside and outside of driver Sébastien Loeb’s Peugeot 208 T16 during last year’s Pikes Peak International Hill Climb.

What makes the video even more special is the fact that on this run, Loeb demolished the record time for the course, turning in a time of just 8 minutes, 13.878 seconds, with an average speed of 145km/h (~90MPH). The prior record was 9 minutes, 46.164 seconds.
