Pikes Peak International Hill Climb – not long until we’re off!

25 May 2018

We’re at the start line. As has already been reported, on 24 June 2018 we’ll once again be at the start line of the legendary hill climb near Colorado Springs. With two brand-new Wunderlich S 1000 Rs, Thilo Günther and Lucy Glöckner are all set to ride up the 4302-metre Pikes Peak around 156 dizzying bends. Our goal is clear: we’ll be going for the win!

We will publish all the information about the race on our social media channels and on our www.wunderlich-motorsport.de site as it breaks. You will find an online stream for the “Race to the Clouds” and lots more information about the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb online at http://ppihc.org/

We hope you’ll have a fun and exciting time as you watch in amazement!

Great news from the USA for Wunderlich MOTORSPORT powered by ProKASRO: Frank Hoffmann, the Managing Director of Wunderlich GmbH, recently received the equally coveted and carefully chosen registration for the 2018 Pikes Peak International Hill Climb. The Sinzig-based company will therefore be starting the legendary hill climb near Colorado Springs on 24 June 2018, and will be in good company with high-calibre, international race and factory teams.

Last year, Thilo Günther entered for Wunderlich Motorsport on a painstakingly prepared R 1200 R LC, and placed in the Top Ten on the first go and thereby generated lots of attention among customers, sponsors and BMW Motorrad. “2017 was our test run. The first time doesn’t count, so in 2018 we want more, and we want to know it! With the support of the active long-distance championship ProKASRO race team surrounding Uwe Reinhardt, this year we will enter with two competitively built S 1000 Rs and ride for victory,” says Frank Hoffmann. “And we’ve got two hot, promising irons in the fire to do just that. Alongside Germany’s most well known road racer, Thilo Günther, Lucy Glöckner – one of the fastest women in the world and participant in the IDM, the Reinoldus Cup and the current long distance championship, to name but a few examples – will pilot the second race machine.” The dynamometers are already running at full capacity!
