RDS and David Donohue take on Pikes Peak

RDS Automotive and Porsche of The Main Line are excited to announce our return to Pikes Peak for the 99th running of America's second oldest race, the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb, on June 27th, 2021. Once again David Donohue will 'Race to the Clouds' behind the wheel of our Porsche GT2 RS Clubsport with the incredible team at BBi Autosports providing technical support. 

“We have learned so much from our own past experiences competing at the PPIHC and to apply those learnings on three diverse Porsche platforms takes it all to a new level” says Betim Berisha, Owner of BBi Autosport. 

“Pikes Peak is a part of history that annually brings out the most fearless competitors in the world to race on some of the most grueling environmental conditions imaginable – and in some of the most technologically advanced vehicles to date,” said Berisha.  “Our participation not only fulfills our passion for racing, but places us among the very best of the best.  Our team and our highly tuned Porsches are testing applications that can later benefit fellow enthusiasts as we apply them to everyday operations, development and advancements for our clients.”

Champion Racing Driver and former Rolex 24-hour GX Class Winner David Donohue returns for another attempt in “Sunny” the Posrche GT2 RS Clubsport after an incomplete run in 2020. Learnings from the 2020 effort have allowed BBi’s team to improve speed and bring more advanced technology to the updated 2021 BBiEVO variant of the GT2 RS Clubsport, through updated aerodynamics, active JRZ dampers and use of a full BBi’s titanium 3-D printed exhaust. David will once again run in the highly competitive “Time Attack 1” class.

Racing For Good

As the BBI Autosport Team at Pikes Peak makes its mark on ‘The Mountain,’ for 2021 the team will also be gaining additional recognition by raising awareness and funds for two meaningful charitable causes, benefitting local organizations for Ewing’s Sarcoma and Parkinson’s Disease, through BBi’s support for two nationally recognized foundations: THE LITTLE WARRIOR FOUNDATION and DRIVE TOWARD A CURE.
