On Sunday at the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb had to be red flagged due to a huge accident at the Devils Playground.
Hill Climb rookie Jeremy Foley’s Mitsubishi Evolution 8 veered off course near Mile 16, and rescue crews lifted both he and co-driver Yuri Kouznetsov to an area hospital. KRDO reportedly said Foley had a broken leg, but nothing was confirmed.
The news Article at the Colorado Springs Gazette, reported it rather like a small race incident.
On watching the video here we decided that the car was involved in a horrendous spin turning over nearly 10 times down a guesstimate 150ft drop.
It’s good that the safety equipment saved the driver and codriver from serious injury.
Throughout their storied histories, Audi and Ducati have forged legends racing up Pikes Peak. With the 90th annual running of the treacherous Pikes Peak International Hill Climb at hand, the two iconic brands chose to come together and pit today’s expressions of performance against the mountain that has crowned each with championship glory.
For Audi and Ducati fans in the U.S. there’s an added bonus: A chance to experience the power of the Audi RS 5 and the Ducati Multistrada together in an unparalleled ride and drive experience.
And to give back to the wildfire-ravaged community surrounding Pikes Peak, Audi is donating to and helping raise awareness for “Battle the Blaze,” a donation fund established by the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb.
