You may not know, but the current production car record in the Pikes Peak hill climb belongs to a 911 GT2 RS driven by Jeff Zwart in 2011. This follows his previous record established in 2010 while driving another 911, this time a GT3 Cup.
Even more amazing, in both years he drove his race / street cars from California to Pikes Peak, all 1132 miles of it !
And, according to the grapevine, this year he will be driving a GT3 RS 4.0… I’m anxiously waiting.
