Richard Boake will be the only Canadian Subaru at this year's Pikes Peak Hill Climb.
Markham, Ontario – The 2016 addition of the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb (PPIHC) will feature Canada’s very own Richard Boake, who will be competing as the only Canadian Subaru entry out of 100 recipients.
Pikes Peak includes 156 corners of rugged terrain, changing altitude and blind corners all of which attract the very best of touring car and rally drivers from around the world annually.
“I’m excited to be a part of the 100th anniversary of the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb,” says Boake. “Being that it is the second oldest motor racing event in US history (second only to the prestigious Indy 500); I’m honoured to be participating in 2016 with our Can-Jam, Pirelli-Prestone, Subaru entry.”
The Pikes Peak International Hill Climb is on June 26, 2016 and will be broadcast at a later date.
