90TH PIKES PEAK INTERNATIONAL HILL CLIMB 2012 – ROMAIN DUMAS

‎2010 Le Mans Champion Romain Dumas Will Challenge The Pikes Peak.

After winning some of the most prestigious endurance races in the world, including the 24 Hours of Le Mans, Spa-Francorchamps (2003, 2010), 24 Hours of the Nürburgring (2007, 2008, 2009, 2011) and the 12 Hours of Sebring (2008), Dumas will tackle the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb. 

The Alès, France, native will take the start of the 90th edition behind the wheel of a Porsche 997 GT3-R in the Pikes Peak Open Division.

“I’ve wanted to race on Pikes Peak for a long time,” Dumas told organizers. “The Audi-Peugeot dual is part of my childhood memories. I remember seeing pictures of Ari Vatanen and I had the chance to meet Walter Rorhl, who was the first to slip under the 11-minute mark. To be at the start of such a legendary race will be like a dream come true. Just from its history and its characteristics, Pikes Peak is a challenge you have to approach with humility. It’s a h

uge test, and an adventure that will be unlike anything else I’ve done in my career.” 

Alongside his Porsche and Audi programs as official driver, as well as his rally schedule run with his proper team, Dumas will be competing in the hot Porsche 997 GT3-R.

His rookie appearance on Pikes Peak will be a learning year for Dumas.

“I’ll be discovering a new universe, totally impossible to simulate, of course,” he said. 

“This experience will without a doubt be very interesting. I wanted to make my debut at Pikes Peak in a Porsche, and after thinking long and hard, I decided on the Porsche 997 GT3-R. I know the car and its qualities well, and I have to be smart and realistic against true specialists of the discipline, whose cars will be much more powerful. I won’t be fighting for the overall win this year. But in time I’d like to add this race to my list of accomplishments.”

Sean Klingelhoefer posts another “Making of” behind the scenes look of his Automotive photo session with Porsche Flying Lizards GT3 RSR for Le Mans 24 hour 2011.

It is with great pleasure that I give you a look behind the scenes of the most challenge yet most fun photoshoot I’ve had to date. It should come as no surprise since I’m a Porsche enthusiast and Flying Lizard fan that I jumped at the opportunity to work with the team. It all started with some discussions during the off season, then a few months ago the head of PR/marking got in touch with me about a photo shoot concerning images for Le Mans. What I didn’t know at the time were the constraints I would be facing for the shoot.

Like me, I tend to get a bit excited about Porsche Rallye events. I hope that you do too, and if so, then these videos are for you  The cars are powerful and the drivers are in full control of their incredibly insane machines. They burn up the courses, proving what a Porsche can do when allowed outside of the norm! Rock on!
