Chris is a two-time class winner in the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb, piloting at 1973 Porsche 911 RSR Tribute, first in internal combustion configuration, before conversion to an 8-motor electric beast. He is a longtime Porsche nut, Past President of Alpine Mountain Region, Chief Driving Instructor, and currently serves on PCA’s National DE Committee. He has raced in a wide array of series, currently doing his road racing in a 1982 Reynard Formula Ford.
The Pikes Peak International Hill Climb ranks as one of the most famous (and dangerous) races in the world. It’s also the second oldest race in North America. Its list of winners reads like a who’s who of motorsports. Chris worked with a long list of these legends in writing the most exciting book on the race to be published in years, “The Peak of Racing”. He’ll share many never before seen photos, stories from folks with names like Unser and Andretti, and provide insight into the race’s illustrious history, and what it’s really like to race on America’s Mountain. He will be happy to personalize and sign copies of the book, which takes the reader up the mountain through all 156 hair-raising turns, recounting many humorous stories along the way.
You must be a member of PCA or a guest of a PCA member to attend.
