We are excited to announce the successful completion of our 2012 Quest for the Peak - WE ARE THE 2012 PPIHC UNLIMITED CLASS CHAMPIONS!
On August 12, 2012, David Donner piloted the Palatov D4 PPS to a first place finish in the Unlimited class of the Pikes Peak International Hillclimb. His time of 10:04.652 put him 5th overall (out of over 160 competitors) and only 18 seconds behind the new overall record.
Working with a very short timeframe and a very limited, grassroots-funded budget, the Palatov team has been able to design, build, prep and race the D4 PPS, succeeding against more experienced and much better funded teams from all over the world.
We are very grateful to our sponsors for believing in us and providing the crucial support that has enabled our success. With everything we have learned in 2012 we know what needs to be done to challenge the formidable competition as we run again in 2015.
The blog detailing our 2012 Quest is now on the dpcars.net pages. Our 2015 blog is now accessible to sponsors and will be made public after the race.
