Updated August 22, 2018
Want to watch the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb but can’t make it to Colorado? Luckily for you, the event will be live streamed over the internet. For free. There are other ways to watch it, but you can’t beat a live stream that includes over 22 camera angles, helicopter views, rider and driver interviews, and all that goes with it. If you’re going to be outside of the USA this Sunday (and even if you’re in country, to be honest) the link below is going to be your best friend.
2017 will mark the 95th anniversary of the legendary Pikes Peak International Hill Climb, so to really kick the event into a higher gear, the organizers have decided to live stream the action right across the internet. In collaboration with matchsports.com, you’ll be able to beam the whole day of racing directly into your home. The process is simple, and definitely worth while.
Get The Pikes Peak Live Stream For 2017
All you have to do is visit this link to matchsports.com, give them your name and surrender your email address, and you’ll be sent a unique activation code that will give you access to the live stream. For the moment, you’ll only get a countdown timer until the event begins – but even that’s a handy reminder for those with lax time keeping skills. Be warned, when we signed up our activation code went into our “junk mail” folder – so double check that!
Here’s what the Broadmoor Pikes Peak International Hill Climb Facebook page had to say about the live stream: “Viewers can tune in to live.matchsports.com/ppihc.html to watch the broadcast LIVE on Sunday, June 25th, starting at 7:30am (race delays may occur.) There will be a simple email sign-in process required to access the free to net broadcast, which will continue until the race program has been completed and cameras follow the Parade of Champions down America’s Mountain.”
“Viewers can expect to see footage of each car on course from the 22 cameras placed along the track, as well as exciting helicopter footage (weather permitting.) Viewers will also get to see a course overview, POV footage from Carlin Dunne’s safety run, driver and rider interviews, leader board and weather updates, segments with special guests and a look back into race history, plus hear driver bios, timing updates from all three stages, average speeds and overall standings throughout the day.”
With more and more motorsports events becoming too costly to watch on TV, it’s nice that the PPIHC crew have decided to give this away for free. Thanks very much!
