Included in the Ducati Pikes Peak VIP ticket, the Entrant’s party is held at a famous local private estate called the Penrose Mansion because of it’s history with the Pikes Peak Hillclimb event (the event was founded by the homes owner). We enter though an elaborate series of immaculate gardens. It’s true old fashioned glamour. A few feet off the walkway was a deer eating foliage on the building wall, it’s back to the people strolling by who are charmed by it’s presence, about as tame as a wild animal could be. First thing I see when I arrive – the Pikes Peak Ducati’s. Second? An Audi, in race trim with the Ducati logo on it’s side. It’s the first sighting of the Audi brand and the Ducati name together I have seen…
Tomorrow- A group ride to a great lunch spot led by the Butler maps folks and then FanFest, a huge party in town.
