Dream to Drive, Drive to Dream ™
The PPIHC is a race ran on a 12.42 mile (19.99 kilometer) course on Pikes Peak - America's Mountain, that begins at 9,390 feet (2,862.07 meters) above sea-level and finishes at the 14,115 foot (4,302.25 meter) Summit of spectacular Pikes Peak – Americas Mountain. As the drivers climb toward the Summit, the thin air slows reflexes and saps muscle strength in addition to robbing internal combustion engines of up to 30% of the power they were capable of at the Start Line. Competitors and vehicles must be in top shape and condition simply to finish, let alone win.
