Broadmoor Pikes Peak International Hill Climb
June 29, 2014 @ 3:00 am - 6:00 pm$40
The Broadmoor Pikes Peak International Hill Climb is the second oldest motorsports race in America behind the Indianapolis 500 and a long-standing tradition in Colorado Springs and the Pikes Peak Region. It began in 1916, and this year marks the 92nd running of the “Race to the Clouds.”
The race is run on a 12.42 mile, fully-paved course with 156 turns that begins at 9,390 feet and finishes at the 14,110 foot summit of America’s Mountain. As the drivers climb toward the summit, the thin air slows reflexes and saps muscle strength. The thin air also robs engines of 30% of their power at the summit. Competitors, vehicles and motorcycles must be in top shape simply to finish, let alone win!
The Hill Climb is an exciting event for the whole family, but it can be unpredictable. Bring the kids…but keep them under close supervision. Children must be accompanied by an adult if in the pit areas. Children under 9 are admitted free of charge.
