It’s the third time in a row that Ducati is leading the 2012 Pikes Peak International Hill Climb. It was then Carlin Dunne-ridden Multisrada 1200S that started from the pole position and cataloged a time of 9:52.819. Now if you are thinking he was all alone then I must tell you that Dunne was accompanied by the Spider Grips Ducati-team-mate, Greg Tracy. Earlier, Tracy stood as the winner for six times, but this time he managed to get the second position, recording a time of 9:58.262.
When Dunne was asked to comment at his victory was gave all the credit to the work and efforts put up by the Spider Grips Ducati team. It was because of these two factors that Dunne thought helped him cross the finish line in less than 10 minutes.
The Ducati ended up showing up a teaser figure of average speed of 230kmph throughout the course. It was then that Audi acted as the topping of the ice-cream. The latest video released by the German automaker has actually raised eyebrows of many. The teaser video actually referred to the 2012 Pikes Peak International Hill Climb with the mysterious RS5 project starred in the video. The video exhibited a connection between the project and Ducati. Although the exact connection is yet to be discovered, the German carmaker has been seen to be commenting on its participation. As per the statement coming in from the car manufacturer’s side, Audi and Ducati were to team up at the 2012 Pikes Peak International Hill Climb to celebrate and exhibit their common heritage.
With so many things and connections veiled under the 2012 Pikes Peak International Hill Climb, we can’t stop expecting that the German luxury giant, Audi has still many things in its box, and so has the 2012 Pikes Peak International Hill Climb.
