Sometimes, what you watch is just too incomprehensible to believe, and only someone with loose screws in his head could possibly pull something off - and have a smile on his face while doing it.
In a nutshell, that’s what this video is all about. Ever the bold and daring type, EVO Magazine’s features editor, Henry Catchpole, is determined to take an open-top Caterham Supersport up a French mountain, which, incidentally enough, has snow on it. Undaunted by the task, Catchpole bravely - and we use that term loosely - ascends up the mountain on a car that’s missing a roof and is probably not as suited as most in that kind of environment.
Never mind the fact that it’s probably freezing up that mountain; what gets us is his seeming nonchalant, devil-may-care attitude as he tries to muster up every last ounce of power on that Caterham’s 140-horsepower, 1.6-liter Ford engine as it slides along the snow-covered road.
You can’t say that Catchpole isn’t trying; but for the sake of keeping his body temperatures in check, he might opt for a Caterham with a roof for his next snowy mountain escapade.
