Most serious enthusiasts know the name Jeff Zwart from his long time career as a top automotive photographer and videographer. From car manufacturer television ads to major car magazines to an ever growing collection of Porsche books, Zwart has created some of the most memorable automotive imagery of the past couple of decades. What only truly hardcore gearheads might know is that Zwart is also an extremely accomplished Porsche racer.
In fact, Jeff is now a seven time class winner at Pikes Peak! On Sunday, Zwart bested the 2wd Time Attack class record by a whopping 38 seconds, taking the win in class. Driving a race prepared Porsche 911 GT3 Cup, the Colorado based driver was faster up the hill than all but 5 cars. The only cars that were faster included three Unlimited Class and two Open Wheels cars, all of which boasted over 600 horsepower. Pretty good for a production race car!
Keeping true to his reputation, the in car video of Zwart’s attack is quite possibly the best quality in car ever shot. Do yourself a favor and view the video on the absolute best monitor you can find, select the 1080p HD option, press full screen and crank the speakers up really loud!
