Taking on Pikes Peak!

No rules, more than 150 competitors, start in a forest setting and finish on a lunar landscape. It’s the Mt. Everest of the automobile! Catch it June 29, 2014!

The “race to the clouds”

  • The start is given at 2,865 meters altitude and finishes at the summit of the highest peak in Colorado, 4,301 meters!
  • At 19.93km in length, the event is composed of 156 corners with switchbacks and impressive drop-offs.
  • The second oldest race in the United States after the Indy 500. The first race on Pikes Peak, known as the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb, took place in 1916.
  • Nicknamed the “race to the clouds,” the race will be celebrating its 92nd edition in 2014.

Second in 2012 driving a Porsche 911 GT3 R, Romain Dumas will be at the wheel of a Norma M20 “RD Limited.” The team began development work on the prototype with one objective: battle for outright victory.

The weapons to do battle!

  • A competitive chassis adapted to the unique nature of Pikes Peak.
  • The experience and data gather from the 2013 edition.
  • An evolved motor, more powerful and more reliable.
  • Important work done to the car’s handling ability.
