Porsche LMP1 factory driver Romain Dumas will be competing in this year’s Pike’s Peak International Hillclimb in a Honda-powered Norma N20 RD prototype chassis. Even though the car probably isn’t up to challenging for the overall win at the mountain against the big budget electric and unlimited classes – especially if Sebastian Loeb shows up with that Peugeot monster, again! – it’s still a fast and wild ride up the mountain in preparation for one of America’s oldest and most storied races.
You can check out Dumas’ Pike’s Peak practice run (which is actually in France) ahead of the actual June 29th event in the video, below, which originally appeared on Racer’s YouTube channel, with the following intro:
