    Rhys Millen set a course record at Pikes Peak on Sunday.



    Veteran Pikes Peak International Hill Climb driver and multiple-time class winner Rhys Millen, who is from Huntington Beach, Calif., drove a 2013 Hyundai Genesis coupe to the top of Pikes Peak with a course-record time of 9 minutes, 46.164 seconds on Sunday.

    The record run wiped out a short-lived course record of 9:46.181, set by Romain Dumas of France just minutes earlier in the Pikes Peak Open class. Millen, in the Time Attack class, posted the best time among 170 entrants (132 finishers) in all classes.

    “I drove as hard as I could,” Millen said. “The course was so slippery on the first three-quarters of the course, and I just pushed that little Hyundai Genesis as hard as we could. No warning lights, the engine ran flawlessly from the start and again to being slick to the finish on the rain, and to beat such a world champion as the Porsche team, in Dumas. This is a victory; this is my biggest victory in the past 18 years on Pikes Peak.”

    Millen said that his record time was in line with his goal heading into the run.

    “Me and my dad went over numbers yesterday, and we added up all of our sectors and came up with a 9:21,” Millen said. “With the sections that you don’t get to practice, I said a 9:41. Just knowing that things usually run hard on race day, I said 9:45. My previous best was last year in the Unlimited class at, I believe, a 10:07; we got second overall.”

    This time around, Millen brought a production car that he had run in drift completion as recently as two weeks prior in Seattle, and his run marked the first time a production car has conquered Pikes Peak in less than 11 minutes. This is also the first year that the entire 12.42 miles of road on the course was paved, which led to quicker times, even in sometimes rainy conditions.

    “We skipped 11 minutes and went straight into the nines,” he said. “This car is built for going sideways, not for going up a mountain. We just competed against the best in the world, and we beat them.”

    Dumas finished second, followed by Carlin Dunne of Santa Barbara, Calif., who was third in a Ducati (9:52.819).

    A good race indeed, but marred by the fact that some of the fastest cars - the Open Wheel and Super Stock cars - were relegated to a partial run because they were not run in the morning as they should have been. Shame on PPIHC, and hope a lesson has been learned !!! My favorite drivers were not given their fair chance to share in the record setting times !!!

    Umm... no? Tajima's car went off the road less than a mile from the start with catastrophic failure and smoke in the ****pit. He didn't even finish the first leg.



    Glad to hear Jeremy and his co-driver in the EvoD car are okay. That was a pretty serious wreck.. much worse than the car that went off the same corner last year.

    Ya, I was referring to last years. LOL> I had no idea he had issues this year until Wednesday. Those were some wild crashes and glad everyone was okay. The track being full pavement really made some interesting twists into the storyline and the rivalries.
