I just saw this article in Wired magazine and it included a pretty crazy video.

This video must be HD because it looks fantastic.

Wired (http://www.wired.com/autopia/2009/07/fiesta-pikes-peak/) - The Pike’s Peak International Hill Climb is as wild a race as you’ll find. Cars slide through 156 turns as they sprint 12.42 miles on pavement and gravel road that rises from 9,390 to 14,110 feet.

You gotta love a race where they blast by a 20 mph speed limit sign at ridiculous speeds.
