Acura Integra Racecars Earn Top-Five and Top-10 Finishes in the 102nd Running of Pikes Peak International Hill Climb

  • INDYCAR, IMSA veteran Katherine Legge drove the HRC Acura Integra Type S DE5 to a top-five finish in the Time Attack 1 division in her Pikes Peak debut
  • Paul Hubers clocked his best-ever run in the HART Acura Integra A-Spec, finishing among the top 10 in the Pikes Peak Open class
  • BMX pro athlete Coco Zurita piloted the Acura ZDX Type S pace car to the summit, making history with the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb's first all-electric pace car

Acura's Integra racecars earned top-five and top-10 finishes in the 102nd running of The Broadmoor Pikes Peak International Hill Climb brought to you by Gran Turismo this weekend, paced by the all-electric Acura ZDX Type S pace car.

Making her debut on Pikes Peak, INDYCAR and IMSA veteran Katherine Legge finished among the top five in the Time Attack 1 division in the Acura Integra Type S DE5. Unlike the prior week's cold and wet practice sessions, this year's hill climb presented unexpectedly idealistic weather conditions, with many racecars' cooling systems struggling in the warm, sunny weather that exacerbated Pikes Peak's inherently thin air at the summit. Despite the challenging conditions, the Integra Type S DE5, HRC's newest racecar, ran reliably for its stint finishing in 10:51.359.

Acura engineer Paul Hubers returned for his third year in the historic hill climb behind the wheel of the HART Integra A-Spec. Between Hubers' growing experience on the grueling mountain course and key modifications to the Integra's powerplant, chassis, and new sticky Yokohama ADVAN racing tires, the associate-led racing team shaved nearly 28 seconds off their last attempt at the hill climb, finishing in 11:40.736 and achieving the HART Integra A-Spec's best performance yet.

Motorsports is a critical component of Acura's commitment to Precision Crafted Performance, and its Pikes Peak efforts are a pure expression of this ethos. This is the performance brand's 14th consecutive year competing at Pikes Peak, with the Acura team amassing an impressive 12 first place in-division finishes, over 30 podiums and multiple records.

The Pikes Peak International Hill Climb in Colorado is one of America's longest running motorsports competitions. Since 1916, drivers from all over the world, in a wide variety of vehicles and from multiple motorsports disciplines, race against the clock as they take on the challenging mountain course, starting at 9,390 feet and climbing to the 14,115-foot summit.
