When many people think about the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb, often the radical one-off race cars that compete for the overall best time come to mind. In reality, though, much of the field is composed of a diverse number of vehicles ranging from rally cars to stock cars to electric prototypes, not to mention the dozens of bikes and quads that also compete. Not surprisingly, there are generally plenty of Ford Mustangs entered into the race as well, from classic ’60s Mustangs that compete in the Vintage Automobile division to current S197 Mustangs that compete in the Time Attack or Open classes.
This year was no different, with no less than eleven Ford Mustangs entered into four classes for the 90th annual Race to the Clouds. Eight different Mustangs competed in the Vintage class, with racers coming from as far as Australia and Sweden, Pikes Peak veteran and Colorado resident Clint Vahsholtz raced his 2002 Mustang in the Super Stock Car division, David Schmidt had his highly modified 2008 Mustang GT entered into the Pikes Peak Open division, and Kash Singh’s 2008 Shelby GT500 took on a very large field in Time Attack. Singh actually drove his Shelby from Michigan, where he works for Ford, to the race in Colorado Springs, and then drove it back afterwards!
