Editor's note: Can't make it to the Broadmoor World Arena to see the Yellow Devil? See video from our Facebook page.
A bit of history will come alive on Monday for The Broadmoor Pikes Peak International Hill Climb race week.
Spencer Penrose’s Yellow Devil will be roar its way back to life. It will be on display at technical inspection at the Broadmoor World Arena at a 10 a.m. event that is open to the public.
The Yellow Devil is a modified 1918 Pierce-Arrow, seven-passenger touring car that raced the mountain eight times between 1922 and 1932. Its most successful runs included the car’s fourth-place finishes in 1926 and 1930.
In 2015, the Yellow Devil was restored to its glory. In 2016, it climbed Pikes Peak during an exhibition run for the centennial celebration of the Race to the Clouds.
The car has a 520-cubic inch, six-cylinder motor. When it’s revved up, the car sounds like a World War II fighter plane.
The Broadmoor Pikes Peak International Hill climb begins at 8 a.m. Sunday. The Gazette will have full coverage of the event.
