The smell of dust and the lurching ride caused by "washboard" grooves on the gravel surface disappeared abruptly.

For the next few minutes, the brown cloud kicked up by tires was gone and the Pikes Peak Highway was a smooth ride through two switchbacks above Glen Cove Inn.

The 1.7-mile stretch of asphalt -- laid last month -- gives motorists an idea what to expect when all 19 miles of the road are paved by 2012.

People who drive the highway for a living, such as Kent Chaney, notice changes among some of the 90,000 or so vehicles that make the trip up Pikes Peak each year.
The resurfacing is result of a 1997 lawsuit by the Sierra Club against the city of Colorado Springs, which has operated the highway since 1948 and leases it from the U.S. Forest Service.

The lawsuit accused the city and Forest Service of violating the U.S. Clean Water Act by putting tons of gravel on the road that cascades down the mountain during storms, burying plants, choking streams, silting reservoirs and killing fish.

The suit was settled when the city agreed to lay asphalt on the 12 unpaved miles of highway, build concrete culverts, dig catch- basins to divert and control storm water and revegetate eroded slopes.

The first mile of asphalt went down in October 2001, near the seven-mile marker above Crystal Creek Reservoir, said Jack Glavan, capital projects manager for the highway.

No asphalt was laid in 2002 as engineers redesigned the project. An additional 1.8 miles was added in September 2003, taking the pavement to Mile 10, just past the Halfway Picnic Grounds.

Another redesign halted paving in 2004, Glavan said. It resumed in August above Glen Cove Inn as crews worked to stabilize the area above the Severy Creek drainage.

That area is a priority because the Colorado Division of Wildlife is protecting the sensitive habitat of the endangered greenback cutthroat trout.

"We needed time to evaluate the detention structures and sediment traps they were building up there," said Gary Dowler, state wildlife manager. "From what I've seen, I think they'll do a fine job."

Glavan said monitoring devices in streams and reservoirs will tell if pollution abatement is successful. But he believes the benefits are evident.

"Anecdotally, you can see the sediment traps we've put in a couple of years ago are working," he said. "And we're starting to see some revegetation."

Building the culverts and detention basins is the hardest part of the project. They are reinforced concrete and must be designed to channel water, slow it and stop erosion. It involves sloping the road properly, pouring concrete for culverts and building dams to create catch-basins.

And it requires working amid heavy summer traffic and between frequent summer storms.

In fact, as crews were letting concrete cure and preparing to pave in August, thunderstorms undermined the culverts and required rebuilding them, delaying the project.

Crews soon will wrap up this year's work by transplanting plugs of tundra soil, hydroseeding native grasses, laying erosion-control blankets and mulching about four acres above the new pavement.

Next summer, crews will pick up the paving where it stopped above Glen Cove and push through the switchbacks known as the W's and beyond, if weather permits, to Devil's Playground.

In 2007, work will start at the summit and head down, finishing the last three miles on the upper portion of the highway. That work will take two to three years, Glavan said.

About 2010, the schedule calls for work to resume at the Halfway Picnic Grounds, go past the old ski area and up to Glen Cove for a 2012 completion. By the time it's finished, Glavan expects the project will have cost $20 million.

Four legitimate world-class stars should produce more pure drama than Pikes Peak has seen in ages. It's not just a one-shot bonanza, either. That's because, as soon as the entire road is paved with an interstate-grade surface (in either 2011 or 2012), Layton says other major manufacturers such as Porsche, BMW and Audi are ready to step in with more cars, big-name drivers and competition.

"When the paving is done, it won't be a dirt race anymore," Layton says. "We'll see a different kind of vehicle, and they'll take us to a new level. It'll be road racing instead of dirt-car racing. We'll see rally cars like never before."

Next week, the mile leading to the summit will be paved. (The long-term paving project has focused first on areas that have had the most erosion issues.) After the top segment is done, the 2009 race will be closer to two-thirds on asphalt, the rest dirt.

bumping this up.

official time was 11.52.8, for Rally Readys evo 8.Record set in 1997 is 11.29.xx set by a turbo awd saab. (RRs goal)
Dave Kurn (nearest competitor with a ams/ nos energy sponsor) ran 12.10.3

Both cars having issues up the mountian but Rally Readys not AS bad as the Kurn team. Thanks to all that came out, I saw alot of subies up and down the hill, there was only one in competion but never started. So the open class was a 1-2 evo finish.

I was there this year; did you ever hear what happened to the guy who got airlifted to the hospital? Rumor at the top was that he swerved to avoid a "fan" who had happened to be standing in the road. I couldnt find any follow-up on the interweb a few days after the event.
