Pikes Peak: Racing with NO RULES

What happens when you let engineers have completely free reign? No regulations, no power limits and whatever mad aero design they can come up with.
Well, you get crazy-powerful, high-downforce - monsters.
This is exactly what they do in the Unlimited Division at Pikes Peak, where we get to see how they stack up against each other, as well as how it can go wrong.
Home-designed and made machines can compete against big-money international car companies to race to the top of the 14,000 foot mountain. A course with no run-off, no barriers, standard road-tarmac and 2000 foot drops.

The Unlimited Division is like nothing else in motorsport. Taking a look at the regulations, they say as long as you conform to the regular safety rules - you can do anything you like.
As much power as you want, any design and as much downforce as you can create. As long as you have a roll-cage, harnesses, helmets and other standard safety features - you’re good to go.
This leads to some extremely fast cars, and yet all of them are very different.
So what does it take to take the record at Pikes Peak? How quick is it possible to go with no rules?

    IMHO this has been probably the most significant achievement from a electric car beating a combustion car ever. And that Pal Bunyan Machine driven by Paul Dallenbach was just awesome. Fortunately he survived the accident with minor injuries.

    Yeah, Pikes Peak lost its appeal to me when they began paving it. As far as I'm concerned Toyota with Rod Millen is the only one that truly holds the Pikes Peak record time. Since the paving of Pikes peak, even with the Unlimited division it just lost its appeal to me. Yes, it's definitely an achievement and it's dangerous and all that, but it really just isn't that interesting, at least to me.

    A non-annoying way to encourage liking and subscribing that I saw elsewhere is a short reminder at the end of a video along the lines of: "if you enjoyed the video, don't forget to push the like button, and subscribe if you want to see more". IIRC Aarava does this, but in latest videos, he did add visual nags and thus didn't receive a single like from me since then.

    So PPIHC Unlimited Class is the right place if you want to see all out race cars or time attack cars without any strict rules. No limit in aero No limit in engine power No limit in weight No limit in drivetrain No limit in budget Just follow the safety rules, & there you go. Correct interpretation of the class name : UnLimited.
