The Pikes Peak International Hill Climb is a legendary mountain race that takes place every year on the summit of Pikes Peak in Colorado, USA. The course is 19.99 kilometers long and has 156 curves that demand everything from the drivers. In the 1980s, the race was particularly exciting because it was the era of Group B rally cars, which set new records with their powerful turbo engines and four-wheel drive.
Among the most famous drivers of the time were Walter Röhrl, Michèle Mouton and Bobby Unser, all of whom drove different versions of the Audi Quattro. Röhrl was the first to break the 11-minute mark when he set a time of 10:47.850 minutes in 1987. Mouton was the first woman to win the race when she clocked a time of 11:25.390 minutes in 1985. Unser was the oldest winner when he posted a time of 11:09.220 minutes in 1986.
One of Audi's biggest competitors were Lancia, who competed with the Delta S4. The Delta S4 was an engineering marvel that combined a turbocharger and supercharger to produce over 500 horsepower.
The Pikes Peak races in the 1980s were a spectacle for spectators, who could admire the breathtaking driving maneuvers and spectacular jumps of the rally cars. Drivers not only had to demonstrate courage and skill, but also cope with the changing weather conditions and loss of power due to the thin air at high altitudes. The races were a milestone in the history of motorsports and have not lost their appeal to this day.
And now it's your turn to chase the two cars up the famous hill in one piece and as fast as possible.
