Race on Pikes Peak electric car won

Race on Pikes Peak electric car won


The next “Race to the Clouds” at Pikes Peak won the first electric car – a few years of trying to “green” to overcome the mountain crowned with victory tireless Rhys Millen to eO PP03. The crew made a rise in 9 minutes 7.2 seconds.

Company drifter and rally driver Millen on the catwalk made a legendary Nobuhiro Tajima – Pikes Peak without him it is not present – again on the electric car Tajima Rimac E-Runner Concept_One (+25 seconds) and Paul Dallenbah, speaking in a class Open Wheels car PVA (+29 to).

Figure piloted a very unusual electric vehicle, you guessed it. More specifically, in 1386, a strong gizmo (2160 Nm) from the six motors and weighing just 1150 kg. The exact performance characteristics we have, but we know that the maximum speed eO PP03 is 260 km / h.

However, the absolute record of all 133 starters crew headed by Millen remained very, very far. Yeah, it’s about us invincible Sebastien Loeb, which in 2013 broke Pikes Peak on abnormal Peugeot 208 T16 – Loeb cope with the rise of 8 minutes 13.8 seconds.
