It’s no secret that Switzerland has breathtaking scenery—including those incredible strings of accidental artistry the Swiss call roads, which snake their way through said breathtaking scenery.
The ironic twist is that the Swiss have some of the strictest automotive-related laws on the planet.
For one: if a man washes his car on Sunday, he’s violating noise laws. For two: a ban on almost all motor-racing since the 1955 Le Mans disaster… almost.
The only race allowed in the country is a single stop on the FIA European Hill Climb Championship.
A very brave man from Luxemburg who goes by the name of David Hauser tackles the St. Ursanne/Les Rangiers climb in a GP2 car, which is essentially a junior Formula 1 car and no small feat considering the track is public roads 99.99% of the rest of the year.
Watch the spectator video and then sit shotgun with Hauser for the on-board video.
