Welcome to Donner Motorsport
Welcome to the official website of Donner Motorsport, a Colorado Springs, Colorado based team that fields entries for David Donner. Donner Motorsport participates in many forms of motorsport, including professional and historic road-racing, but specializes in hillclimbs, especially the world famous Pikes Peak International Hillclimb.
Besides being a Pikes Peak's International Hill Climb Champion and Veteran, David Donner's talents are legendary in the highest elevations. From 14,110 ft. to sea level, David is honored by his colleagues and lauded by the industry.
In addition, Donner comes from a long line of motorsports excellence. His grand-father Robert Donner was active in the Colorado Springs business community and helped revive the Pikes Peak International Hillclimb in the post WW II years. His father Bobby Donner Jr. was also active in promotion of the event, but was also a strong participant, winning the race three times in Porsche 550 Spyder variants in the early 1960s before going on to become active in the international and domestic professional, club and historic racing scenes wth a series of Ferraris. David's older brother Bobby Donner III was a Pikes Peak winner with a promising career in motorsports when he tragically lost his life in freak accident involving a deer.
For 2013, David Donner has returned to the family's Porsche roots for the Pikes Peak Hillclimb, putting aside his open-wheel Dykstra-Donner special in favor of a Porsche GT3 Cup car, which he has been devoloping through the spring months and has ready to go for the 2013 event with some very promising times in testing.
Donner is also a Screen Actors Guild (SAG) member and is currently available for precision driving, vehicle testing and commercials.
