Video of rally legend Walter Röhrl in his Audi
On July 11, 1987, rally legend Walter Röhrl stepped on the accelerator of the nearly 600 hp Audi Sport quattro S1 and climbed the Piker Peak mountain in just 10 minutes and 48 seconds. No driver had ever been faster up the unpaved dirt road. It was a milestone in the history of the oldest hill climb in the United States and also a milestone for Audi. Faster times were recorded later, but only after paving of the course, which has now been completed, had begun. Now watch the legend take on a tarmac course with ease. Pure excitement!
