GoFundMe Fundraising Campaign Created to Support Carlin Dunne

Colorado Springs, Colo, ---  Following the tragic death of the Spider Grips Ducati motorcycle rider on June 30, 2019 while racing at The Broadmoor Pikes Peak International Hill Climb, brought to you by Gran Turismo, Ducati North America and the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb have created a GoFundMe online fundraising account to support Carlin’s mother, Romie, during this difficult time. His loss is felt throughout the international motorcycling and racing community.

Carlin was a 4-time champion of the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb, won Rookie of the Year in 2011 and broke the 10-minute barrier the following year, setting a new course record that stood for five years.  He then selflessly volunteered two race seasons as part of Ducati’s Squadra Alpina Team, with the Race Smart program, mentoring rookie riders as they first came to race the mountain. He was loved, respected and admired by all those whose lives he touched.  Watch Carlin’s Saturday preparation video which is a true picture of who Carlin was as a man and a competitor. 

Following the race, at the Awards Ceremony on Monday, competitors paid tribute to Carlin as a mentor, a friend, a competitor, a racing icon and spoke of the impact he made on their lives.

In addition to his efforts at Pikes Peak, Carlin’s passion for two wheels took on all forms. He raced and won the Score Baja 500, competed in the Score Baja 1000, was one of the first two riders to traverse the La Carrera Panamericana, competed in the Super Hooligan series Bonneville Land Speed Racing, was a pioneer in Freeride Mountain biking, served as a partner in Ducati Santa Barbara and performed motorcycle stunt work for both television and film, among many other accomplishments.

All proceeds raised through the GoFundMe account will go directly to Carlin’s mother to help with expenses and to honor his legacy with a celebration of Carlin’s life in Santa Barbara a month from now. 

The PPIHC Board of Directors have donated $932 to represent Carlin's incredible estimated time of 9:32 had he crossed the finish line. This would have been a new motorcycle course record, beating the current by 12 seconds. We ask you to consider matching the 9:32 unofficial time with a $932 donation to honor Carlin’s remarkable run on Sunday.  We would appreciate any donation to support Carlin’s mom with funeral expenses and Carlin’s celebration of life.

This is the only official channel for donations and support.
