MatsNorway, you have single-handedly revived my interest in Pikes Peak. Thanks, I'll see if I can get there next year.
Your welcome hope to see some pictures then and perhaps an article?
You also have to add that F1 cars only reach the proper performance with very small ride height because the diffusor contributes a lot of the downforce. For that concept to work you have to run the car very low which isn't feasible at PP.
Maximum power: 875hp
Maximum rpm: 7,800rpm
Top speed: 240kph
0 to 100 km/h (62 mph): 1.7 seconds (sounds rather optimistic)
0 to 200 km/h (124 mph): 3.8 seconds
0 to 300 km/h (186 mph): 8.6 seconds
0-160-0 inn less than five seconds.
Quarter mile: about 8sec without drag spesific setup (estimated by you good folks some time ago)
For me there is little doubt a F1 car would take it. Loeb had and average of 141km`h
