Japan’s Motorhead Magazine hosted their inaugural Motorhead Hill Climb event this year and they chose a beautiful stretch of mountain road to do it at.
The Mazda Turnpike, as it’s called, is a fast, demanding, and dangerous route that goes over the gorgeous Hakone mountain. For their first hill climb event, Motorhead Magazine managed to shut down eight kilometers of this road, making it the perfect place for the likes of a BMW Z4 Super GT race car and a Ford GT-40 to stretch its legs.
The event drew numerous cars, several of which are featured in an excellent video put together by the Motorhead crew. If you feel like watching some stunning cars tackle this incredible road with great views and spectacular driving along the way, this video is worth seven minutes of your time. This is how Japan does a hill climb.
