Pikes Peak King Of The Hill with Bobby Unser - 1986 PPIHC

Added by AutomotiveUploads
Take a step back to the past and join Bobby Unser as he partners with Audi to remind the world that Pikes Peak - America's Mountain is Unser's Mountain during the 1986 edition of the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb (PPIHC).

Bobby Unser; an 11-Time PPIHC Champion, 14-Time PPIHC Class Winner and 3-Time Indianapolis 500 Champion, was amazed by Michele Mouton and how Audi's quattro technology dominated the 1985 edition of the Race to the Clouds to claim the first overall victory, course record, and female champion in the PPIHC's 70 year history with a non Open Wheel vehicle recording a time of 11:25.390. Mouton's historic run bested Al Unser Jr.'s 1983 course record by nearly 13 seconds and inspired Bobby to come out of retirement in 1986 to put the record back in the Unser name after 12 years away from PPIHC competition.

Bobby was amazed with the fashion in which Audi's quattro technology gripped and took off, moving forward instantly with all four wheels pulling independently of each other to make the car become one with the road. Unser admired Audi for reaching for the unknown and knew the Audi Sport Quattro SL was the only option to get the record back in the Unser name.
