Rod Millen Pikes Peak Tacoma in 45secs at Goodwood Festival of Speed 2003
Rod Driving his awesome Pikes Peak Tacoma at Goodwood 2003.
Amazingly he didn't set the fastest time that year, that honour went to
Graeme Wight Jr, in his Gould Cosworth.
Still, an amazing time. Hope you can crack 44 this year Rod. You're the
highlight of the FOS for me.
For the Record, the Car has been timed at 0-60MPH in 2.8 Secs, and 0-100MPH
in 4.9 Secs. 0-130MPH in 8.3 Secs. It produces over 850BHP, has 500 lb Ft
of Torque and the engine is 2.1 Litres, turbocharged, with a compression ratio of 8.5:1.
The Car weighs just 886 KG!!
Goodwood - Festival of Speed 2008

Here's my take on what I've seen on Sunday 13th July 2008 at the Goodwood
Festival of Speed.
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.

Climb - Pikes Peak Hill Climb with a Monster
Ride on the bumper of a screaming 910hp, Twin-turbo, All-wheel Drive, 150 mph Suzuki SX4 as it
races up one of the world's most dangerous hills. An attempt by the
"Monster" to break his own record of 10:01:41...
COLORADO SPRINGS, CO (June 29, 2010) -- For the fifth consecutive time,
Nobuhiro "Monster" Tajima combined experience, skill and Falken Tires to
claim overall victory in the 88th running of the Pikes Peak International
Although he did not set a new Pikes Peak record, one day before his 60th
birthday, Tajima continues to hold the current overall record for reaching
the peak, beating hill climb veterans Paul Dallenbach and Rhys Millen in
the Unlimited Class. He drove his new 910-hp Monster Sport Suzuki SX4 Hill
Climb Special on Falken WildPeak A/T tires, the powerful new line of
all-terrain, all-season tires Falken launched this past April.
Following Exhaustive tests in a
Japanese wind tunnel facility, Monster's 2010 Pikes Peak race car underwent
extensive aerodynamic changes to better adapt to the modified road surface
on the race to the clouds, which assumed a smoother tarmac and less gravel
than last year. Thinning air ascending the mountain robs most motors of
their power by 30 or more percent, but the increase in horsepower over last year's
race car helped push the driver forward.
