When: Saturday, November 16, 10:00 am- 12:00 pm
Where: Porsche Colorado Springs
Join us with Chris Lennon, Porsche racer, Pikes Peak International Hill Climb winner and author of the just-released book, “The Peak Of Racing”. It's a gorgeous new book, filled with never before published photos, amazing stories, and details going back to the 1916 start of the race. Chris is just coming off an impressive sixth podium finish in seven tries on Pikes Peak in his 1973 Porsche 911 RSR EV (yes, it's electric now).
Did you know that the list of winners in this legendary race includes names like Andretti, Unser, Mears, Vatanen, Pobst, Canepa, Dumas, and many more?
Hear some of the incredible stories these legends have to share. Would you believe several of these drivers are afraid of heights? Can you guess which driver swore never to return (and didn’t) after winning because it was too dangerous? What is it like to cross the finish line at 14,115ft, and who did it backward? How and why are Pikes Peak and Indianapolis forever linked?
Chris will put you “in the driver’s seat” with an audiovisual presentation including some of the top names in motorsport to see what it’s really like to compete in America’s second oldest race.
Copies of Chris' book "The Peak Of Racing" will be available to purchase, and Chris will be there to sign those, or any you might have purchased earlier. For those wanting to purchase a copy before the big night, they're available at the dealership’s Service Department and online at www.peakofracing.com.
