Colorado Springs, CO — The 2024 Broadmoor Pikes Peak International Hill Climb, brought to you by Gran Turismo is pleased to announce this year’s elite field of 74 competitors.

This year, 21 drivers based in Colorado will challenge the mountain.
“We couldn’t be happier with the caliber of entries we received,” shared Melissa Eickhoff, PPIHC Executive Director. “Once again, we had considerably more applications than the number of competitors we could accept, but our selection committee did a phenomenal job of vetting each driver and their vehicle. Spectators can expect to see some returning Kings of the Mountain, an exciting new Pikes Peak GT4 by Yokohama division, and twenty promising rookies who hope to conquer this 14,115′ mountain.”
