The “band” is back together to conquer Pikes Peak Mountain in Colorado Springs, June 30th, 2019. We will be racing the latest Porsche 718 GT 4, one of seven in the field and the latest model from the factory.
TBR is partnering with Rennsport-One out of Pompano Beach Florida to prep and maintain the cars throughout the race. RS-1 is dedicated to Race Development and they are a leader in Porsche tuning solutions. They committed to this race and to engineering a winning car. Last year their team produced one of the winning cars in our Porsche class. They work in partnership with Colorado Springs Porsche and have factory support for PPIHC.
This is The Broadmoor 97th Pikes Peak International Hill Climb brought to you by Grand Turismo, known as The Race to the Clouds.

Team Baltimore Racing:
We started this racing journey around the Baltimore Grand Prix. Winning a legal race in our Home Town was always a dream and putting a positive spin on the good things that happen in Baltimore was at the forefront of our mission. We are vested here and we work hard every day to make it a better place to live for our children. TBR also uses their racing platform to highlight the good that people do within our community that makes a difference – Boy Scouts of America, Catholic Charities, University of MD Pediatrics and the American Heart Association.
We offer a variety of sponsorship levels that provide businesses of any size the opportunity to dip their toes into the motorsports marketing pool. Though most of our sponsors are new to this concept, they understand the importance of integrating the racing team into their current marketing plan.
Future of Team Baltimore
This year at the PPIHC, we are supporting the Wounded Warrior program, Catholic Charities, the National Aquarium and United States Air Force Athletic program. Our goal is to fully engage with these local organizations through volunteering and promoting what they do in their local communities. We are going to host a Track Day for the WWP during the race preparations and would love to host a wine dinner and auction for another organization.
