Dunne, at his victory said that the work and effort that the Spider Grips Ducati team has put in to help prepare for the Pikes Peak, has played a very important role in allowing him to cross the finish line in less than 10 minutes.
The average speed of the Ducati was 230kmph throughout the course. Audi had released a teaser video as well, for the 2012 Pikes Peak International Hill Climb. Starring the video was the mysterious RS5 project which seems to have some connection with the Ducati. Still have to figure out, the “what.” Before the race, Audi had commented on the participation and had also stated that the Audi and Ducati are to team up at Pikes Peak to celebrate their common heritage.
