Hill Climb comes to History Center

       In the parking lot outside the Old Colorado City History Center June 4, members and supporters of the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb Association pose for a photo around a car driven to victory in the 1968 event by Bob Herring. From left: Tom Neid, Dwight Wenger, Dave Bachoroski, Marianne Martin, Harry Martin, Lowell Smith, Lisa Haight and Don Sanborn. Along with the car, the group brought the Hill Climb’s Mobile Museum (containing graphic exhibits of old cars and racers) to the History Center parking lot before an illustrated presentation on race history inside the center by Sanborn, a third-generation Hill Climb race driver/volunteer. The 89th annual Race to the Clouds will be June 26.
