The Pikes Peak International Hill Climb (a.k.a. The Race To The Clouds) is an annual hill climb event on Pikes Peak Mountain in Colorado.
The track is 12.42 miles (19.99 km) long, has 156 turns and climbs 4720 feet (1440 meters) on grades that average 7%. The finish is at 14,110 feet (4,300 meters). There are multiple competition classes for cars and motorcycles.
In 1970 Mattel made their own mountain race set. But for this track, the direction is down hill and 2 cars go head to head all the way to the bottom. It’s the Hazard Hill Race Set.
In the box components include 1 mountain base, 1 dual-lane track with starting gate and 11 red trestles.
Adding your own orange track to the start and to the finish extends the set to a full mountain raceway. A crossover section in the middle of the hill adds some extra suspense to each race.
So there you have it.
The 1970 Hot Wheels Hazard Hill Race Set.
It’s still fast. Still fun.
