The Brumos Collection and Brumos Racing will compete for the second straight year at the 101st running of The Broadmoor Pikes Peak International Hill Climb later this year, the museum and racing team announced.
This event marks the second competition for Brumos Collection/Brumos Racing since 2013, the team said.
David Donohue will again drive the Brumos Collection/Brumos Racing Porsche GT2 RS Clubsport prepared by BBI Autosport, wrapped in the iconic Brumos Racing livery, that he raced in 2022 to a Time Attack 1 division win at a time of 10:35.830. Last year’s climb was held under severe foggy conditions, preventing the team from breaking the Time Attack 1 record of 9:36.559, set by David Donner in 2020 in a Porsche GT2 RS Clubsport.
The goal this year, in celebration of Brumos Racing’s 50th anniversary of the team’s overall win at the 1973 24 Hours of Daytona, is to defend the division win while breaking that record, the team said.
“All in all, I am very excited for this year’s competition, a new century for Pikes Peak, the 50th anniversary for Airtech Advanced Materials, and a celebration commemorating the 50th anniversary of Brumos Racing’s first Daytona 24-Hour race win,” Donohue said. “There will be a lot to celebrate if we can add another victory to Brumos’s impressive history.”
“We at Brumos Collection/Brumos Racing are excited to return to the mountain at Pikes Peak,” said Dano Davis, Founder of the Brumos Collection. “With David at the wheel and the excellent support of BBI, Yokohama and Airtech Advanced Materials, I know we have an excellent chance of breaking that record and putting the Brumos name firmly in the Pikes Peak record books.”
The car is currently being prepared at the Brumos Collection and Museum in Jacksonville, Florida, the organization said.
