Revvolution and Shift-S3ctor announce the return of the Pikes Peak Airstrip Attack at the Colorado Springs Airport. Half-mile side-by-side roll racing event adds more excitement to Pikes Peak Speedweek and Colorado Springs.
The first time you hold an event in a new location, there is always the concern of if the fans will enjoy it and, more important, will they show up? Those fears were allayed for Shift-S3ctor and Revvolution as more than 3,000 spectators poured through the gates at the inaugural Pikes Peak Airstrip Attack by OB Prestige Auto. Featuring half-mile roll race and trap speed competitions, we knew it would attract a lot of attention–not only from the spectators, but also from enthusiasts and the race community as well. With over 90 competitors (per day) averaging more than 750 hp, we knew this was going to be a killer event.
This past weekend, we had the opportunity to check out an event that we've been itching to become part of for some time now. When our friends at the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb (PPIHC) mentioned that they were invited to participate in an SCCA Rocky Mountain Solo Championship Series 2013 autocross event, we jumped at the opportunity to get on-board. While we were anxious to finally get some of our own Revvolution vehicles involved in this particular event, several final adjustments needed to be completed before they were ready to hit the tarmac. So instead, I grabbed my Canon to try and capture the essence of what this event was all about.
Held at the New Coalinga Municipal Airport about three hours northwest of Los Angeles, it was the perfect venue to host the new location of Shift-S3ctor’s Airstrip Attack - a high-speed shootout, half-mile rolling drag, side-by-side racing event. With speeds in excess of 210 miles per hour, it truly separates the weak from the strong.
