Pikes Peak Hill Climb By A 16 Year Old Girl In A MINI

Savannah Rickli, of Littleton, CO. is the youngest female competitor in Pikes Peak Hill Climb race history. She finished her run in her 2003 Mini Cooper in 13:58.232 and was brought to tears after reaching the summit. The junior at Dakota Ridge High School said "This is such a personal victory. I've been waiting for this moment since I went to my first Hill Climb 12 years ago. I'm just so happy to be up here."

Here is a video from Rickli's second day of practice for the race -
