RX-8 SCCA Hillclimb Racing Video Series

So after 10 years of tracking, autocross, and time trials, i've decided to switch things up this season and try out SCCA Hillclimbs, which are considered the highest level of Time Trial due to the increased risk. This neccessitated that i finally get some real safety gear. Luckily, my NASA TTD prep was not far off of SCCA DSP (street prepared classes are used in hillclimbs, among other options), so i was able to make minor changes to fit in that class this season. I'm running with pennsylvania hillclimb association (PHA), who runs events in the (you guessed it...) pennsylvania area. I plan to do a new video after each hillclimb this season. The RX-8 is not an ideal choice for an uphill competition (130 torques, yo) BUT there's nothing like sliding a rotary sportscar up a winding mountain road (initial D touge... but legal!)

My hope is that these videos are as entertaining to watch as they were to capture and make! Here's one where you catch a bit of air...
