I met a couple fast dudes today

So as promised, I'm in Colorado Springs for the Pike's Peak International Hill Climb. (PPIHC) Tonight was Fan Fest, where you get to go check out some of the cars and meet some of the drivers and stuff. This is when I got to have my picture taken with US drift racer Rhys Millen.

I also got to have my picture taken with Nobuhiro "Monster" Tajima. If you've ever played Gran Turismo and driven the Escudo, or know anything about it, that's him. This guy has won the PPIHC numerous times. This year they showed up in a purpose-built Suzuki XL7 which has all wheel drive and makes 1007 horsepower. Fuckin a.

On Saturday we'll go up the mountain and watch all these guys race up the treacherous, windy gravel road. Should be fucking ridiculously cool
