With race day just around the corner, everyone is gearing up for the big event this weekend. Monday was the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb (PPIHC) Tech Inspection Day at the World Arena in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Open to the public, inspections began at 8 am and the last few cars and bikes rolled in by 5 pm. Being the first official fan day of the event, it provided the general public a perfect opportunity to take photos and get autographs from their favorite racers.
On June 30, more than 150 drivers and riders will take to the Pikes Peak Highway for the 91st running of the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb (PPIHC). Before them are 156 turns winding up a 12.4-mile road that cuts through dense Ponderosa pines, then up above the tree line to sheer granite cliffs. Let's take a moment to reflect on the past 91 years and what this race means today.

We had an exclusive opportunity to shoot and cover a private testing day for the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb. On the ticket were Sébastien Loeb, Rhys Millen, Fred Veitch, Robert Prilika, Jeff Zwart, David Donner, Chris Lennon, Carlin Dunne, and Greg Tracy. This was the first opportunity this year for any of these drivers to complete a full ascent to the top of the mountain in a single session.
