For a century, the world’s most punishing motorsport hill climb has attracted bold competitors who have made it to the summit at 14,115 feet to triumph on the Peak, including the greats of American motorsport, Mario Andretti, Parnelli Jones, Roger Mears, Al Unser, Al Unser, Jr., Louis Unser, Bobby Unser, Rick Mears and scores of others, including generations of racing families with names like Dallenbach, Millen, Donner, and Vahsholtz.

In recent years, as the popularity and profile of the race spread around the globe, fans have seen a whole new family of international winners emerge, like Japan’s Nobuhiro Tajima, the first driver to break the elusive 10-minute mark in 2011, New Zealanders Rod and Rhys Millen, Finland’s Ari Vatanen, Sweden’s Per Eklund, Romain Dumas of France, and Sébastien Loeb of France, who stunned the world with his Pikes Peak course record of 8:13.878 in 2013 in his specially designed Peugeot 208 TT16 Pikes Peak auto.
