About this event
Pikes Peak Tour sponsored by Merit Financial Advisors
Join us for an unforgettable experience on a tour up Pikes Peak led by Pikes Peak International Hill Climb Champion and past AMR president, Chris Lennon. This tour will focus on the legendary race (second only to the Indy 500 in longevity) and will travel what's commonly referred to as “The most beautiful racecourse in the world”.
Each participant will receive an autographed copy of “The Peak of Racing”, a beautiful coffee table book covering the 100+ year history of the race and all 156 hair-raising turns.
The tour will begin at Porsche Colorado Springs. There, participants will get an introduction to this legendary race, its drivers, and a few stories.
We will then head directly to the mountain itself.
Stops will be made along the way, where interesting and entertaining stories will be shared, and any questions answered. Stops are expected to be at the pit/paddock area for the race, Glen Cove and Devil’s Playground (which offers a view of about 4 miles of the 12.41-mile course). These have plenty of parking and offer beautiful settings. The tour will conclude on the 14,115-foot summit. There, we will visit the brand-new Summit House, get a keepsake photo with your car taken, and enjoy gorgeous vistas before heading back down to the dealership for a delicious lunch.
Registration fee is $10.00 per person, all proceeds will be donated to the Marian House in Colorado Springs.
Breakfast, admission to the mountain, the book, and lunch will all be provided courtesy of our generous sponsor, Tom Williams of Merit Financial Advisors.
We hope you will join us for unforgettable experience!
We will depart at 8:45 AM from Porsche Colorado Springs at 917 Motor City Drive in Colorado Springs. Plan to arrive at the dealership by 8:00 AM for breakfast snacks, registration and a mandatory driver’s meeting at 8:30AM.
