What a great time to be a motorsport fan! Honestly folks, after such an exciting weekend I expected a relatively quiet week in which we could work more on the podcast. Well this is a time where I am more than happy to admit being wrong because photos have surfaced of the Peugeot 208 T16 testing for the upcoming Pikes Peak International Hill Climb! (At the very least, I now have a good reason as to why I am not getting any work done this morning)

For those of you who may not be in the know, Peugeot is throwing all their weight into this hill climb with the 208 T16. The mighty machine will race to the clouds with nine time WRC champion Sebastien Loeb behind the wheel!

But wait that’s not all!

As of today, there are talks of Peugeot planning a sequel to Climb Dance. Let’s hope these talks turn into reality, for this should be a no brainer for Peugeot and Red Bull. If you don’t even know what Climb Dance is, then you need to immediately stop everything your doing and check out this amazing short film. Released in 1990, Jean Louis Mourey directed this award winning film that featured unique camera angles and amazing on board shots of rally legend Ari Vatanen taming the famous peak with a Peugeot 405 T16 at his disposal. If you haven’t seen the video then you need to stop everything and watch this beautiful piece of cinematic art. Once this requirement has been met, then you need to check out the recent promo video released that features the new 208 T16.
