There's a new documentary series coming out about Colorado's most dangerous race and it's sure to be a hit with automotive thrill seekers around the globe.

Dubbed 'Pikes Peak: On the Edge,' the three-part series will cover the 2020 Pikes Peak International Hill Climb – a race that sends drivers to the 14,115-foot summit of 'America's Mountain,' up 12.42 dangerous miles flanked by cliff drops and featuring 156 turns.

The first part of the three-part series covers preparation for the race, the second part covers practice sessions prior to race day, and the third day covers the big event.

All three parts can be streamed on the MotorTrend app starting on Wednesday, December 16. In additional to this series, the app offers more than 3,600 hours of racing content.

The Pikes Peak International Hill Climb first ran in 1916 and is often referred to as 'the Race to the Clouds.' The course is extremely dangerous and features many hazards including weather, falling rocks, and wildlife on the roadways, all along a route where a single mistake could be deadly.
