Climb Dance in HD

Watching Climb Dance, in high definition, is there a better way to start the week?

We can’t think of many ways to top this, so sit back and strap yourself in for a crystal clear ride with one of rallying’s best, Ari Vatanen, as he man handles his Peugeot 405 T16 in the 1988 Pikes Peak International Hill Climb.

Jean Louis Mourey originally released this film back in 1989 and the remastering of the footage was commissioned by Peugeot last year as part of its Pikes Peak assault which saw Sebastien Loeb smash the all-time record for the 20km course.

In 2013 Loeb reached the summit of an all-paved Pikes Peak in 8:13.878. Ari Vatanen’s 1988 time was 10:47.77.

Climb Dance featuring Ari Vatanen

Welcome to one of the best pieces of motorsport footage ever filmed. Jean Louis Mourey’s five minute masterpiece captures the sights and sounds of Ari Vatanen at the 1988 Pikes Peak International Hill Climb. Vatanen literally manhandles his purpose built 447kW (599bhp) all wheel drive Peugeot 405 T16 to the summit on his way to victory in a then record time of 10:47.77. The current outright record, set at the 2007 event, is 10:01.41, set by Japan’s Nobuhiro “Monster” Tajima driving a Suzuki XL7.
