Audi owns superbike maker Ducati, and here’s a video to remind everyone of the acquisition that happened earlier this year, and promote the machines that will race up Pikes Peak.
The 1:55 clip stars Audi’s RS5 and Ducati’s Multistrada 1200 S against a Pikes Peak backdrop consisting 12.42 miles and 156 turns up the 14,110 feet mountain. It gives us great sweeping views of Pikes Peak, so we can put in place some mental images of “the race to the clouds” to go along with the live reports that have been streaming in from Colorado, USA.
The video illustrates some famous Pikes Peak points, such as the sequence of hairpins called the Ws. As you can see, there’s not much room for error!
