Driving a formula car at a hillclimb looks about as crazy as you could imagine | Video

Just in case the uneven roads and sharp drop-offs don't make hillclimbs sound challenging enough, you could also compete with one of the fastest four-wheel machines available: an open-wheel formula car.

If you could run in a hillclimb anywhere in the world, where would it be, and what car would you want to drive in it?

The sparks off the front wing seem like they might be distracting to the driver!

Gotta love titanium!

I have an aluminum plate on the front of my f500 that scrapes some on bumps, been thinking about upgrading to titanium for sparky fun. (Although, that might be a bit much for autocross....)

Is BPM on the lower left his pulse. Not surprised by the numbers if so.

I always thought this one was particularly good.  The runs starts at 1:30.
