Peugeot To Take part in 2013 Pikes Peak Hill Climb [w/Video]

In keeping with its competitive nature, Peugeot has decided to contest the 2013 Pikes Peak Hill Climb (Colorado, USA, 30th June) which continues to stand out as one of motor sport’s most exacting, internationally-reputed competitions.

 Peugeot’s bid to win the unique Colorado Springs based event with the Peugeot 208 T16 Pikes Peak has led it to join forces with key partners: Total, Red Bull, Michelin and Sébastien Loeb.

Peugeot has in times past been triumphant with the legendary 205 T16 and 405 T16 Pikes Peak. Ari Vatanen’s unforgettable record-breaking victory on the 1988 event in the 405 T16 is documented by the celebrated film, ‘Climb Dance’. Peugeot won the famous hill climb a second time in 1989, this time with the USA’s Robby Unser behind the wheel.

The Pikes Peak Hill Climb’s unique course was finally entirely asphalted last year and comprises 156 turns over a distance of 20 kilometres that takes competitors from an altitude of 2,800 metres to 4,300 metres at its highest point. The event is famous too, as the USA’s second-oldest motorsport competition after Indianapolis and, over the decades, it has earned a reputation as a notoriously difficult and complex challenge!

The Peugeot 208 T16 Pikes Peak has been entered in the premier ‘Unlimited’ class and has been given the start number ‘208’. Its sole objective is victory!

Below is the Climb Dance video mentioned above. Enjoy!
