Climb Dance

This is one of the great motorsport films. Directed by Jean Louis Mourey it depicts Ari Vatanen driving a four wheel drive, all wheel steering Peugeot 405 up Pike's Peak in 1988 before it was paved. Very, very fast! When the sun gets in his eyes he drives one handed. Great film. The original version of "Climb Dance" had Randy Weston's "African Village/Bedford Stuyvesant" playing over the first minute of the film -  I believe Peugeot didn't have permission to use it in this remastered version which is a shame - but the extra definition makes it well worth watching. (As usual - go full screen and full volume!)
