Take a listen folks – you're hearing the eventual future of motorsports. This is Greg Tracy and the Mitsubishi MiEV Evolution III as they assault the treacherous course at Pikes Peak in just 9:08.188.

This run is significant for a number of reasons. As we recapped in our Pikes Peak finale post, Tracy's run was a mere two seconds off the best overall time at this year's event, snagging him and Mitsubishi second place overall, as well as first in the Electric Modified class and the fourth fastest time ever recorded. Perhaps more importantly, though, Tracy thoroughly trounced the previous EV record at Pikes Peak, beating the legendary Nobuhiro "Monster" Tajima's 2013 best of 9:46.530.

It's an impressive feat, and now you can experience the whole run from as near a first-person viewpoint as you're going to get. Scroll down and have a look.

      Well I could have taken that 1 corner better than him. JK Seriously, im surprised that car could move that well considering the metric crap-ton of brass balls it was loaded down with. Wow made my palms sweat just watching.

      Very impressive. The torque and power - obviously - saw no degradation as air became thinner during the accent :) I would have loved to have watched real-time batter(ies) and motor statistical information such as temp, beginning voltage - ending voltage, watts - rated horsepower (is it something like 750 watts equal 1HP?) current draw and peak amps - what can the motor handle? What was the combined weight of driver and car (power to weight ratio)? Does anyone know? Steering appeared to be a challenge at times. Very impressive indeed!

      That thing makes a truly unholy noise.

      Pikes Peak hill climb vids need the little track map and telemetry in the corner like Nuburing vids.

      I'd like to see how close my LEAF made it to the top before losing voltage.

      Amazing sprint with an electric....almost sounded like screeching tires in some corners... What an incredible road.
