TOPEKA, Kan. (June 27, 2013) – SCCA members represent a very diverse cross-section of the motorsports landscape. With that thought in mind, 26 current and former SCCA members are set to take part in the 91st Pikes Peak International Hill Climb.
Rea Lentz won the first race in 1916, completing the course in 20 minutes, 55.6 seconds. With the course fully paved prior to last year’s event, times have dropped below the 10-minute mark. However, the intrigue and danger are still ever-present, as drivers dance on the knife’s edge of control, inches from the edge of the road and, in some cases, a long fall down part of the mountain.
SCCA member Jeremy Foley, of Dallas, knows full-well what can happen when things go wrong at Pikes Peak. Following a devastating crash in last year’s competition, from which he walked away, Foley is back in a Pontiac Solstice GXP, looking to conquer the mountain.
Six current members, Roy Richards, of Boron, Calif.; Sage Marie, of Huntington Beach, Calif.; Will Hunholz, of Snohomish, Wash.; Robert Prilika, of Castle Rock, Colo.; Noel De Los Reyes, of Union City, Calif., and Brian Shanfeld, of Powell, Ohio, are slated to make their first start at the event.
Aside from the competitors, there are numerous former and current club members behind the scenes who have made the Pikes Peak hill climb the professionally-run event it has become. From volunteers to officials to the fans who support the event, one is likely to find SCCA members at every level of support.
We wish each of our current and former members good luck and safe racing as competition is set to begin Sunday, June 30 at 8:00 a.m. (MDT).
