  • Description

    No item title. This is a motor race up the dangerous bends at Pike's Peak in Colorado, USA (U.S.A.).

    Race cars speed round the corner and a man waves his flag. M/S as one car swerves round a corner. L/S of the winding roads.

    Intertitle - 'The highway, which ends 14,110 feet above sea level, has more curves than a Hawaiian dancer.'

    The cars round the bends in a cloud of dust.

    Intertitle - 'What the drivers see .... (As recorded by a Pathe News cameraman in one of the cars).'

    As the car drives up the road we see the hills and valleys below it. M/S as one car drives round a corner. C/U of the winner at the wheel smiling.

    Note: this item contains footage which is the same or similar to 'Demon Drivers' in
    G 1025 on *PM0318*.
