VIDEO: Rhys Millen Pikes Peak 2012 World Record FULL CLIMB
MotoIQ Staff Report
2012 marks the first time in history that the historic Pikes Peak hillclimb has been done on a fully paved course. This marks a new era in the event with new records. It was not a surprise to us that Formula D ace Rhys Millen set the new record for an assault at the peak. We were surprised that his car of choice was not his high tech PM580 race car built specifically for the mountain but his Formula D Hyundai Genesis!
Rhys broke the record despite a hard driving rain near the summit. We hope Rhys returns next year with the P580 to smash the record and cement his name to the top of the books for many years!
