This past weekend, the fourth annual Heuberger Subaru Pikes Peak Airstrip Attack will once again go down in history as the largest event of it’s kind in the world! More than 7,000 adrenaline-seeking spectators, competitors, sponsors and media flocked to the Colorado Springs Airport as new world records were set, engines were blown and egos were destroyed!
Shift-S3ctor, Revvolution.com and the Colorado Springs Sports Corp are excited to officially announce the dates for the 2017 Heuberger Subaru Pikes Peak Airstrip Attack to take place Saturday and Sunday, June 17 & 18, 2017 at the Colorado Springs Airport.
BIGGER, STRONGER, LOUDER, FASTER. 6,500 feet above sea level, two days, two runways and speeds exceeding 225 mph. Records will be broken, engines will be blown, idols will be immortalized and international fame will be achieved. This is how thousands of spectators, hundreds of drivers and dozens of sponsors and media outlets will describe what takes place at the 2016 OB Prestige Auto Pikes Peak Airstrip Attack at the Colorado Springs Airport. Once again, this event will go down in history as the largest event of its kind in the world.
The roll races competition is really what this event is all about. The high-level competition pits competitors against each other, taking them off the streets and putting them in a safe environment where they can really show what their machines are worth. It’s put so much more into perspective. It’s not just about how many horses come pumping out, but also about the strategy, the shifts, putting the rubber to the pavement, gearing ratios and having the cajones to hang it all out on the line for that one glory pull. This is what it’s all about. We’re not trying to diminish the importance of record-enabling trap speeds, but this is toe-to-toe competition and what many of our competitors come out for!
This past weekend marked the conclusion of the 2015 Pikes Peak Speedweek, and what will go down as the most successful and largest half-mile side-by-side roll racing event in the world: the Pikes Peak Airstrip Attack, in our own backyard at the Colorado Springs Airport!
