Shute Claims 100th Pikes Peak Hill Climb

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — Miserable conditions greeted competitors in Sunday’s 100th running of the Broadmoor Pikes Peak Int’l Hill Climb at the famed Colorado mountain. Fog and drizzle engulfed the 12.42-mile course to the 14,115-foot summit of Pikes Peak and unlined sections of newly paved road presented additional challenges, but in the end, it was a familiar winner taking top honors as Robin Shute claimed victory for the third time in the last four years. Shute drove his 2018 Wolf TSC-FS to the top of the course in 10 minutes and 9.525 seconds to claim the Unlimited class and overall victory. The British driver explained the conditions he encountered on the race to the top of the mountain.
