The track measures 12.42 miles (19.99 km) over 156 turns, climbing 4,720 ft (1,440 m) from the start at Mile 7 on Pikes Peak Highway, to the finish at 14,110 ft (4,300 m), on grades averaging 7.2%. It used to consist of both gravel and paved sections, however as of August 2011, the highway is fully paved and as a result all subsequent runnings will be on tarmac from start to finish. The race is self sanctioned and has taken place since 1916. It is currently contested by a variety of classes of cars, trucks, motorcycles and quads. There are often numerous new classes tried and discarded year-to-year. On average there are 130 competitors. _____________________________________ "Copyright Disclaimer Under Section 107 of the Copyright Act 1976, allowance is made for "fair use" for purposes such as criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching, scholarship, and research.

Pikes Peak Hillclimb (highlights), 1995,
Does anyone else miss it when it was dirt? Really bad weather that year, they moved the finish line down the mountain from the summit to Devil's Playground. Most folks got under 10min that year. since the course was a lil' short. There is an Unser, a couple of Dallenbachs, and a Mears. Seems appropriate, considering what I'd heard of racing "families" back then. I also see Jeff Zwart dragging a 911 up the hill. Tajima and Millen are there, too.
