Drew Phillips : Perfect Pikes Peak Photography

These stunning Pikes Peak Hill Climb captures are by Southern Californian based Photography Drew Phillips who’s a full time freelance photographer. His work has been featured on many U.S. magazine covers and editorial features and I’m sure you can see why! I’ve been fascinated by the Pikes Peak race ever since playing the track on Gran Turismo on the PS1. I love how he’s captured the dust trails and sunlight bouncing off through, I think these are my favorite photo sets to date and hope to feature more work from Drew of his magazine images.

 

History of Pikes Peak Hill Climb

The Pikes Peak Auto Hill Climb is a point to point race on a 12.4 mile gravel road which snakes it way up the most visited mountain in North America and the second most visited mountain in the world after Japan’s Mount Fuji. Situated in Rocky Mountain range in Colorado Springs it sits at 14,110 feet above see level and was first made famous in the 1859 Colorado Gold Rush.

The race itself has taken place since 1916 and is still going strongly now with contestants using a variety of classes like cars, trucks, motorcycles and quads and attracting over 150 compeitiors on average. It’s a point to point race against the clock with cars released in at staggered intervals so they get a clean run up the mountain.
