For a month, teams have been practicing setups, driving strategy, and building (or in some cases rebuilding) their chances of conquering the 156-turn, 12.42-mile Pikes Peak mountain in Colorado. This is easily the craziest motorsports event left in America—more dangerous than the World Rally Championship and with the spirit of a 24-hour endurance race. Teams, spectators, and media were awake Saturday night getting ready for today’s climb to the clouds. Here’s how to watch it, starting at 9:30 a.m. ET.
The easiest way to watch is through Mobil 1’s livestream, above and on the Mobil 1 Facebook page. Another free option is local Colorado Springs radio KRDO, which is hosting a live broadcast at KRDO.com, or by tuning in to radio channel 1240 AM.
If you aren’t already following the official Pikes Peak International Hill Climb Twitter, you absolutely should, as they’ll be live-tweeting race results and likely much of the epic carnage from today’s big race.
Reading this on Monday or anytime after the race? Don’t fret. The Pikes Peak International Hill Climb YouTube channel will have post-race coverage, including interviews with drivers and teams for their take on what either went right, or terribly wrong.
We were so excited for this year’s hill climb that we drove over 1300 miles from Michigan to experience it ourselves, and will have post-race coverage with a photo gallery of our own following today’s event.
