The 96th running of the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb is in the books, and once again, Drivers Inc.’s representatives did the group proud.
Rhys Millen grabbed headlines by breaking the Production SUV record in a Bentley Bentayga, running at an average speed of 66.5 mph and finishing the course in 10:49.902. Compare that to the previous record holder—Drivers Inc’s Paul Dallenbach—who took a 2014 Range Rover Sport through the mountaintop in 12:35.610.
You can experience Rhys’s record run first hand here:
Participating in his 25th race, Paul Dallenbach made a splash as well, finishing first in his class (PPC-Open Wheel) and fifth overall in 9:37.135.
Tony Brakohiapa took fifth in his class (Time Attack-Time Attack 1) and 22nd overall with a time of 10:17.183. He posted a number of photos after the race—be sure to flip through them on his Instagram channel, https://www.instagram.com/tonyb_racing/.
Greg Tracy posted a DNF in the PPC-Open Wheel class, but did publish a video of his vehicle prior to the race that showed a lot of promise.
Next year is a new year…
