Cunningham Set for Pikes Peak Hill Climb in RealTime Acura TLX

Peter Cunningham and his RealTime Racing team will take on the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb with a former Pirelli World Challenge-spec Acura TLX GT car, the team has revealed.

Cunningham, who retired from full-time driving last year, is set for his debut in the internationally renowned hill climb, competing in the Pikes Peak “Open” class, with a modified version of the car he drove in the 2014-16 PWC seasons.

The Honda Performance Development-supported project will see the TLX GT be readapted to all-wheel-drive, which last ran in PWC in 2015, with other updates set to also be made. Work is already underway at the team’s shop in Milwaukee.

The 12.42-mile course, which was fully paved in 2012, features 156 turns and vertical rise of 4,725 feet.
