Spectre 341 Challenge 2011 Part 1 – Intro The Hill

It’s a race that defies logic — an old Nevada mining town straight out of a Sergio Leone Western flick, a wild cast of characters, German supercars, Italian exotics, home-brewed racers, vintage muscle cars and even a few helicopter cameraships — all racing up a 5.2 mile mountain road with 500-foot drop-offs and no guard rails. The 2011 Speed by Spectre 341 Challenge hill climb, held in Virginia City, Nevada (aka the Nürburgring of Nevada) is in the record books, logging 48 drivers, 391 runs and five new members of the exclusive Spectre 3:41 Club. It was a wild success.

Virginia City and Carson City Nevada VC&C Railway – Gold Hill Spur

On July 23, 2010 we took a short trip on the Virginia City and Carson City Railway to Gold Hill and back. It was well worth the trip to see the old mine workings from one of the largest gold strikes in history called the Comstock Lode. Incredible views of the desert mountain scapes, old mining tailings, equipment, and buildings dot route from Virginia City to Gold Hill. Travel back in time to the 1800s on this railway experience. Enjoy the video. It was taken on a small Olympus digital camera. The background music is from a group called The Boys from Joe Denny’s Saloon.
