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.
2011 Pikes Peak International Hill Climb June 26th
Footage from the 89th Pike's Peak International Hill Climb on Saturday,
June 26h, 2011. This spot is between Ski Area and Glen Cove at 10,900 Feet.
This year Monster Tajima broke the 10 minute barrier with a time of 9:51.
Also 2011 was the last year for a dirt and tarmac track. In 2012 the
entire track will be tarmac. Be sure and check out my videos from fan fest
and the decent of the racers and subscribe for more rally videos!!
Overview of Pike's Peak from Pike's Peak official website-
The race is run on a 12.42 mile course with 156 turns that begins at 9,390
feet and finishes at the 14,110 foot summit of America's Mountain; Pikes
Peak! As the drivers climb toward the summit, the thin air slows reflexes
and saps muscle strength. The thin air also robs engines of 30% of their
power at the summit. Competitors and vehicles must be in top shape simply
to finish...let alone win!
This year the race has 11 classes and features a variety of automotive,
semi truck, exhibition, open wheel, super stock car, pro truck and
motorcycle classes with a field approaching 200 competitors.
