Pikes Peak Airstrip Attack 2015 – Photo Gallery

The Pikes Peak International Hill Climb (PPIHC) is without question one of the biggest American motorsports events on the calendar each year. In recent years organizers have made efforts to expand the event and create an entire “speed week” of activities anchored by the historic hill climb. In 2014, the inaugural Pikes Peak Airstrip Attack presented by Revvolution and Shift Sector became part of the spectacle, bringing out plenty of fast cars and their hot shoes to the Colorado Springs Airport in the run-up to the PPIHC. The half-mile side-by-side roll race was back this year, with improvements to heighten the excitement for both drivers and spectators.

New for 2015, motorcycles had the opportunity to participate, and the airstrip attack hosted races on two separate runways simultaneously. “Dual runways allow for more races per participant, as well as more room for additional participants,” said Revvolution president and co-organizer Ryan Randels. “We [also] created the Pro-Am class to allow participants to register at an entry-level price point so they can come out and engage in side-by-side roll racing in a safe environment.”

The Pikes Peak Airstrip Attack remains the only event in the country where participants have the opportunity to come together at a commercial airport of this size. Take a gander at our coverage from the 2015 edition, and for more details on the event check out the Shift Sector website.
