Zwart scores sixth Pike'S Peak win - all in Porsches.

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. -- Jeff Zwart, of Woody Creek, Colo., took his 2002 Porsche 911 GT2 turbo up the famous Pike's Peak Hillclimb course in record time to win his sixth class victory at the 80th running of the oldest on-going motorsports event in Nort h America.

Zwart, who now has five victories in the High Performance Showroom Stock class to go along with an Open class win, has always run all-wheel-drive Porsches, but gave up two drive wheels for Porsche's fastest turbo ever, and the trade-off paid off in victory.
