Pagenaud Entering Pikes Peak Hill Climb


INDIANAPOLIS – Schmidt Hamilton HP Motorsports driver Simon Pagenaud will compete in the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb in Colorado on June 30.

The event falls on the weekend between IZOD IndyCar Series races at Iowa Speedway (June 23) and Pocono Raceway (July 7). An Open Test is scheduled for July 4 at the 2.5-mile Pocono oval.

Honda will field cars, motorcycles and an ATV in nine classes along with announcing that it will be a major event sponsor. Honda entered a single vehicle the previous two years, and also had entries in the 1990s.

The vehicles will be developed and driven by Honda associates (aside from Pagenaud), under the banners of Honda Performance Development and Team-Honda Research. Pagenaud’s Pikes Peak vehicle entry and racing class will be announced at a later date.
