Hyundai Genesis Coupe "Build to Formula Drift" with Rhys Millen Racing
Meet Rhys Millen as he talks about the 2012 Formula Drift Race season and the preparations that lead up to the 2012 Formula Drift season. The 2013 Genesis Coupe Drift Car debuted at the streets of long beach this year putting down some solid runs. The RWD Genesis Coupe is an excellent platform for drifting and has lead to a great partnership between Hyundai and the Rhys Millen Racing team. The team has put a lot of hours into preparations and testing which in turn has lead to a reliable and very competitive race car ready for a podium finish. Follow us as we continue our hunt for the championship in 2012. We're going to be posting race recaps a few days after each race as we compete for the title.

Hyundai RMR Genesis Coupe Pikes Peak World Record Run by Legend Rod Millen
Amazing world-record run of 11:04 to the summit by veteran Pikes Peak racer Rod Millen. Rod Millen is 60 years old at this year's competition, but his legendary driving skills are still intact. Rod is behind the wheel of Rhys Millen Racing's RMR Genesis Coupe prepared race car. This same Coupe competes in Formula Drift, driven by world champion drift driver Rhys Millen.
Genesis Coupe Drift Car Heist from Hyundai Headquarters featuring Rhys Millen
About two weeks before the wrecking ball was about to completely demolish our old Hyundai Motor America headquarters building in Fountain Valley, California, we had a crazy thought: Wouldn't it be cool to do something outrageous inside the building before all the walls finally came down? Actually, it was Dustin Loranger, one of our Service Technicians, who had the idea...and we loved it. Why not put Rhys Millen, his Genesis Coupe drift car, and our abandoned HQ together for a unique drift demonstration in a unique industrial setting? Rhys was up for the challenge, and remarkably, so were our lawyers, so we put this thing together, with tongue (and donut) firmly planted in cheek. We think the video does a pretty good job showcasing Rhys' car control skills, the sweetness of the Genesis Coupe drift car, and the reason why Hollywood probably doesn't have to worry, just yet, about this cast and crew. ;) How'd we do?
Rhys Millen's Pikes Peak World Record Attempt
On June 27, 2010, Rhys Millen attempted to beat the current "Unlimited Class" World Record of 10:01.408 at the 88th running of the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb, the "Race to the Clouds." For 10 years, it has been Rhys' dream to break the 10-minute barrier and this year he hoped to capture the elusive record and return it to the Millen name. This is look at his run and the challenges he faced in his custom built Genesis PM580: a 1,850 pound, 750 horse power V6 designed specifically to conquer the 156 turns of this 12.52 mile course (of which this year, half is pavement) that begins at 9,390 feet and finishes at the 14,110 foot summit.
