Held in the Rocky Mountains since 1916, this motorsport landmark has undergone many changes over the past century, but remains one of the most challenging events in the world.

Affectionately known as "the race to the clouds", this hill climb features a 19.93 km long course with 156 turns, starting at an altitude of 2,865 metres and finishing approximately 1,440 metres higher. The machineries, bodies and nerves are put to the test. The changing air pressure significantly influences engine power throughout the climb whilst the drivers often have to deal with a particularly dusty road, changing weather conditions, changing angles of the sun, blind curves and the ever-present threat of the ravine!

Always ready to take on the toughest challenges, the Alpine and Signatech teams will tackle Pikes Peak on Sunday, 25 June, with an Alpine A110 GT4 Evo. The car has undergone extensive development work to master the subtleties of this iconic climb and features imposing aerodynamic appendages to keep it stuck to the ground.

In conjunction with Alpine's design office, Signatech engineers and technicians have focused on aerodynamics and the engine to meet the stated challenges. To underline the links with the road car while demonstrating all the inherent qualities of the A110's chassis on American soil, the A-arrowed brand has also chosen to enter the Time Attack 1 category. As such, the Alpine A110 GT4 Evo will remain in two-wheel drive mode in a field where it will be alongside more atypical prototypes with different philosophies, such as those entered in the Unlimited category.

Alpine will rely on the experience of Raphaël Astier in its maiden Pikes Peak appearance. Winner of the 2022 FIA R-GT Cup with the Alpine A110 Rally, the Frenchman has four previous Pikes Peak starts to his name. In his third participation, he set the record for his class - already in Time Attack 1 - by completing the climb in 9:23.721s. On the strength of this promising initiatory course, Raphaël Astier now embarks on this new journey, which Alpine is approaching, as always, with humility and an irrepressible thirst for learning in the face of the eight other prestigious brands that it will face in Time Attack.

See you in the upcoming weeks to learn more about our band of racers’ American dream, fully echoing the brand's genes!
