The total length of the climbing track is 19.99 kilometers, 156 curves, the end point is 4,300 meters above sea level, and the vertical drop from the starting point to the top of the mountain reaches 1,440 meters. It is the latest racing event in the world that truly embodies the spirit of “fearless challenges and achieve self”.
This is a legendary event in the Colorado mountains. What is the name of the event? ‘The Race to the Clouds’. There is no collision barrier at this event.
As the official timekeeper of the greatest and most legendary car event in history, TAG Heuer will certainly not miss the centennial celebration of this event.
TAG Heuer is the official timekeeper of this event, celebrating the 100th anniversary of the Broadmoor Pikes Peak International Hill Climb and winning the championship with an extraordinary record of 8: 51: 445 A tribute to Romain Dumas. It’s great!
As the second oldest car and motorcycle event in the United States, the Broadmoor Park Peak International Climbing Race (PPIHC), or nicknamed ‘Challenge the Clouds’, is already well-known in the United States on the last Sunday of June Parker Peak, Colorado.
This race is legendary, because the best drivers in the world’s car rally have participated in this challenge and left a strong mark in the history of the race: in the era of Audi and Peugeot, Audi driver Michelle • Michèle Mouton, Bobby Unser, Walter Röhrl and Peugeot driver Ari Vatanen have all won. In recent years, Sébastien Loeb broke the record for this event in 2013.
In 2016, more than 100 participants participated in this event and were divided into 17 groups including the car group, motorcycle group, all-terrain vehicle group and truck group. The ‘unlimited’ category with more than 1,000 horsepower supercars is always the most eye-catching event.
Founded in 1916 by Spencer Penrose, this event is the only event in the world that can always match the slogan ‘Don’t be afraid of challenges, achieve self’ because of its amazing data: the track is 19.99 kilometers long and has 156 turns Road, the starting point at Milestone 7 is 2862 meters above sea level, and the peak end point is 4300 meters above sea level. The vertical drop from the starting point to the mountain top is 1,440 meters. Known as one of the toughest races in the world, this race is a big challenge for both drivers and participating vehicles: In addition to the engine losing up to 30% of its power output, high altitudes will also slow down the driver’s reaction Tighten their minds and cause their muscle spasms.
Don’t forget, this event rarely has crash barriers. With few barriers, small mistakes at the corners can make them fall. The highest point of the track is about 600 meters. Therefore, Parker Peak is famous for its precipitous nature. A legendary extreme car event, an event that perfectly embodies the TAG Heuer’s brand philosophy, #DontCrackUnderPressure.
I can’t help but think that the cooperation between TAG Heuer and Red Bull F1 team is also the founding partner and official timekeeper of the FIA Formula E Championship; TAG Heuer is also the legendary Calella Pan American Carrera Panamericana, Goodwood Festival of Speed, ACM, Monaco Grand Prix, Indy 500, FIA World Touring Car Championship ( WTCC), official timekeeping for sponsored Demsey Team Endurance Races, motorcycle races in the World Endurance Championship (FIM EWC).
