Pikes Peak International Hill Climb
Be prepared to spend some serious coin just to register. The vintage racing club I'm in ran the PPHC every year for the last 20+ years. They have eliminated some of the classes and raised the entry fee to something like $3000 this year. Apparently they are trying to discourage the number of amateur entries because the number of cars every year is getting too big. I believe you have to be able to run the course in under 15 minutes to make the cut. Even then, come race day, if there are crashes or bad weather that causes delays, you can get cut from running if you are in the slower classes. Once you pay your entryf ee there are no refunds, even if you get cut from running.
