Racing a Snowboarder in a 12C Spider

Supercar

Rhys Millen races pro snowboarder Chanelle Sladics behind the wheel of a McLaren MP4-12C Spider.

McLaren wanted to mark the beginning of US customer deliveries of its MP4-12C Spider in a big way. Not just any sort of rollout would do, only something that was borderline insane. And the answer the British supercar builder came up with fit the bill nicely. With current Pikes Peak Hill Climb record-holder Rhys Millen behind the wheel of the drop-top twin-turbo V8-powered supercar, he raced pro snowboarder and Winter X-Games medalist Chanelle Sladics down the treacherous Loveland Pass in Colorado’s Rocky Mountains.

At 11,990 feet above sea level, Loveland isn’t the typical venue to have a race like this, which only makes it more fun to watch. Who ends up the winner? You'll just have to check out the video below to find out.
