Join us on October 12 at El Pomar’s Penrose Heritage Museum from 10 to 11:30 am, as part of the Cool Science Festival, to experience race car engineering with the experts!

Meet mechanical and software engineers and race car drivers to experience what it takes to get a race car to the top of Pikes Peak in the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb:

  • How do race teams find speed and improve performance? Mechanical engineer and race car driver Dan Novembre will demonstrate how sensors on his 2013 Wolf GB08S TC Special collect and measure data.The current course record is held by an electric vehicle (EV). Find out from Hill Climb competitor and inventor Tim Eckert why EV technology excels on Pikes Peak at high altitudes.Try your hand at racing RC cars and timing their runs! Don Sanborn, software engineer and President of the Pikes Peak Hill Climb Historical Association, will share the history and challenges of timing competitors down to fractions of a second on Pikes Peak.
