    Doesn't that bring back memories! Went to a bunch of races @ Lime Rock as a kid. Rode a lap on a bicycle one night too - though for some reason the cops were not impressed.

    Thanks, I enjoyed watching that. Lime rock looks like a nice track.
    There is nothing quite as permanent as a good temporary repair.

    Strictly speaking, it's a trial, not a hill climb, as it is not timed. Points are awarded for how far up you get.
    I would have been there, as I usually spectate, but not this year as it was called off due to too much snow. All the surrounding roads were blocked.

    Agreed, I asked Youtube for a Vintage Hillclimb and that came up, too good to pass up!

    That's right, it's a monoposto diesel record car. Back in 1965, diesels weren't the torquey mpg champions we have today. They were weak, noisy, and smokey. Still, I would take this Peugeot for a ride any day.

    The French simply wanted to beat world records for diesels, so they built a lightened and streamlined 404 prototype and took it to the Montlhery Autodrome. You know, the place near Paris where Ken Block drifted up a wall. In June, powered by a 2163 cc engine, the car completed a 5,000 km (3,106 miles) run at an average of 99 mph.

    True, I wish I'd bought a Moggy instead of a BSA.
