I will give you only one hint. You race up to it!
That's really cool! Were you working directly with Harley Davidson at the time?Haven't been to Pike's Peak in years, but I've spent alot of time there doing altitude testing with various vehicle manufacturer's. Most fun was Harley-Davidson Electra Glides. Amazing how much fun it was to run those things up and down the mountain with their low CG and bottom end torque.
We used to love getting first timers out there and not a year went by that we couldn't trick someone into a race from the parking lot to the restaurant......last one in buys the donuts (at 14,000+feet of altitude)
I heard they quit making the donuts out there.....is that true?
Yes, I worked for a H-D supplier back then. Seems like a lifetime ago (20 years) I had also gone on what we called Hot Fuel & Altitude test trips with Ford working for same supplier.That's really cool! Were you working directly with Harley Davidson at the time?
Haha I know all about those donuts! So much so that I mentioned them in my post race interview:
They still have the donuts up there as far as I know
