AP Racing Brakes Featured on the Radford Motors Pikes Peak Edition05.19.2023
The Pikes Peak International Hill Climb is a storied and unique event in the motorsports world, having served as a grueling test of man and racing machine for over a century in various forms. In the lineup of hopeful mountain-tamers this year is a vintage-inspired creation from British coachbuilder, Radford Motors. Unlike their Lotus-based Type 62-2 sports car, the Pikes Peak Special rides on a bespoke carbon fiber monocoque chassis sporting numerous aerodynamic aids for use on the hill. Thankfully, it retains the iconic black and gold John Player Special-style livery and of course, brakes by AP Racing!
With a reported weight of around 1900 lbs. and 700 hp from the supercharged 3.5-liter V6, the brakes will surely be put to good use on the legendary 156 turn 12.42-mile course. We look forward to watching rallycross driver Tanner Foust send the Radford Pikes Peak Special up the mountain in June. Enjoy the images below, courtesy of Radford Motors.
