Product Description

In “Peak 928” writer/race car builder/driver Carl Fausett has hit on three levels. If you are a fan of the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb, this book will share each of the challenges facing a modern racing team as they prepare, practice and compete at the “Race to the Clouds” – revered as both the Worlds toughest hill climb event and one of the worlds toughest road races. This is also the first new book about the Porsche 928 in many years – a car that still has a strong following ever since it received European “Car of the Year” honors in 1978, the first and still only sports car to ever win that title. And even if you are not a gear-head or a Pikes Peak enthusiast, this is just a darn good adventure story of an under-funded racing team pushing against all odds to the top, well told, and humorously written. Carl’s conversational writing style is rich with information, but delivered in a way that will draw you in like an old friend. The 156 pages include more than 190 full-color photographs of the race car build and preparation, the practices, and the race itself from both the in-car camera and high-quality out-of-car photographs.
