LIQUID IMAGE SPONSORED IDB RACING COMPETES IN THE 92ND ANNUAL PIKES PEAK INTERNATIONAL HILL CLIMB

Santa Rosa, CA., June 23, 2014 – Team IDB Racing made it to the top of the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb in a total time of 12:10.435 which put the team in 14th in the Time Attack 1 Class and 78th overall out of 130 racers.

The Pikes Peak International Hill Climb is one of the oldest, toughest races in the country located in Colorado Springs.  It is often referred to as “The Race to the Clouds” as the course measures 12.42 miles over 156 turns that begins at 9,390 feet and finishes at the 14,115 foot summit of Pikes Peak.  Liquid Image was proud to sponsor team owner and driver, Wil Kitchens, in IDB Racing’s first major race appearance.  The team brought their purpose-built BMW M3 all the way from Texas to conquer America’s Mountain, but ran into some bad luck in the practice rounds that slowed down the car on race day.

“We started the week off great and after the first day of practice our times put us 6th in class,” said Kitchens. “We came back next day ready to drop our times, but hit a damp spot in the pavement which put the car off track damaging the vehicle’s aerodynamics package beyond repair.”

IDB Racing managed to put the car back together and back on the track with some disadvantages.  Kitchens managed to limp the wounded BMW to the top of the Peak where his team celebrated their first finish at PPIHC.

"Despite finishing much further back in the field than we intended to, we were able to acquire a great deal of information that will help us come back next year in much greater form.  We were able to get some excellent video footage with the Ego HD cameras provided to us by Liquid Image,” said Crew Chief Ryan Warren.  “The cameras functioned wonderfully, the supplied mounts worked flawlessly, and their super simple operation allowed us to focus on other aspects of the car rather than having to fiddle with buttons and settings to get the cameras rolling. An added bonus was their appearance - their bright white finish and sleek styling looks awesome on the car and in photos!"

IDB Racing is a small repair and restoration shop located in Houston, Texas which offers factory diagnostic equipment, bumper-to-bumper repairs, towing and transportation, and more.
