Watch Rhys Millen and Paul Dallenbach break the Electric Modified and Open Wheel class records, respectively, at this year's Pikes Peak International Hill Climb. Then, stick around for a quick post-race interview to get personal impressions of their performance.
Rhys Millen is the first person to win the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb in an electric racecar. Monster Tajima followed in second, also under electric power.
Rhys Millen returns to the Pikes Peak International Hillclimb this year, driving a one-megawatt electric car developed in Latvia and going for overall victory.
Last year, Drive eO sent its PP01 electric supercar up Pikes Peak in the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb - well, part-way up. Driver Janis Horeliks wasn't injured in the crash that ended his run near the Halfway Picnic Grounds. This year, the Latvian team will return to Colorado race again with a Tesla Roadster chassis in the Electric Modified division on Sunday, June 29.
