Empire Hill Climb: Watch Peter Cunningham Run His Pikes Peak Acura TLX

Of course, wrangling a high-horsepower front-wheel-drive car around a mountain isn’t exactly an easy task. Cunningham’s long racing pedigree and familiarity with Acura made him a good fit for the car. If you’re unfamiliar with Cunningham’s racing efforts, let’s get you up to speed.

He’s raced in World Challenge, IMSA Firestone Firehawk Endurance Championship, IMSA Endurance Championship, IMSA Exxon GT, IMSA American Le Mans, Grand-Am, CART, SCCA U.S. Road Racing, and Canadian Auto Sports Motorola Cup. His pro racing career started in 1986 in the IMSA Firestone Firehawk series, and over his career, he’s amassed 14 driver’s championships -- not bad.

Considering his racing prowess and his car’s pedigree, he has a solid chance of taking the top honors at this year’s Empire Hill Climb, but we won’t know until he crosses the finish line. You can see his competition here, or head up to Empire this Saturday to check it out in person.
