Are you interested in witnessing a competition self-recognized as "the most diverse one-day motorsports event in the world"? Here at Pikes Peak Acura, we encourage you to attend the upcoming Broadmoor Pikes Peak International Hill Climb (PPIHC) - an event we're proud to help sponsor - and take in these daring acts of automotive brilliance and displays of competitive spirit for yourself!

What is the PPIHC?

Recognized as the Broadmoor Pikes Peak International Hill Climb and presented by Gran Turismo, this competition involves an automobile and motorcycle climb to the summit of Pikes Peak.

When Was it Founded?

The PPIHC was founded by an entrepreneur and public figure – founder of The Broadmoor Hotel, El Pomar Foundation and Pikes Peak Highway – Spencer Penrose many decades ago back in 1916.

How Does it Work?

Taking place on America’s Mountain here in Colorado, this international automobile and motorcycle hill competition spans 12.42-miles on public toll roads and features 156 turns, requiring competitors to climb a total of 4,720 feet to reach this summit.

This ascent doesn’t come without consequences, making this competition as fierce as they come. The higher competitors climb, the more air thins. Human reflexes naturally slow due to this effect, testing the mental fortitude of professional participants. The thin air even impacts engine power, decreasing by 30 percent from the initial capabilities available at the starting point. Competitors must endure many hours of training and preparation to account for these trying factors.

When & Where Will it Take Place?

This competition will commence on the last Sunday of June, starting at the mile seven marker of Pikes Peak Highway and concluding at the mountain's 14,115-feet summit.
