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?

6:20 "thankfully the roll cage, HANS device and crash structure worked perfectly leaving Paul with nothing more than bruises" -Well I suppose that's true if concussions are just brain bruises. The HANS device stops your skull, your skull stops your brain. Racing is cool but let's not pretend people walk away from a high speed crash unharmed

LMAO, the designs are non imaginative and wont go very far. This is a excercise in false hope. Heres what I would do instead; 1- not compete 2- if I did, I would not imitate my predecessors. Instead, I would simply add a "double structure" which would make the vehicle look like it was carrying a ballon or other structure. This simple change would open up more possibilities and enhance the desired effects. Limiting the aerodynamic structures to the main structure is too limiting. To improve, you need to think outside of the box. So why not do that and make a different box? 3- feel free to use my idea. However, I expect credit if you do use it, and any financial gain from using my idea should instead of being given to me should be instead given to a charity dedicated to the care of animals. No contributions to carbon footprint charities!
