Pikes Peak International Hill Climb 2014; Photos


This past weekend I headed down to Colorado Springs with my girlfriend, Erika Vikander, to watch her step-father compete in the annual Pikes Peak International Hill Climb. Rick Knoop is a veteran road racer, including victories at Monza, The 24hrs of LeMans and many more world renowned races. He has only climbed Pikes peak one time before in 2012, competing in the super unlimited class (the big dogs) driving a 1958 Lister-Jaguar. This year he was to return with the same car but major improvements in aerodynamics and motor performance.

Rick Finished 2nd in the super unlimited class and 9th overall with a time of 10:16:07 a whole 40 seconds faster than his time in 2012!
