Sorry for not paying attention the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb this year but with the whole course paved from top to bottom, all the race lost its magic for me. Plus, Nobuhiro Tajima, after dominating the unlimited class for years and breaking the 10 minutes barrier last year, chose to participate in the electric vehicle class in this year's edition. Well, you can't blame him!

Unfortunately, the race didn't go as well as expected for him and he was forced to abandon. The 850 Hp LOVEFab NSX failed to finish too and there was a huge Lancer Evolution crash that you can watch here... And oh yes, Rhys Millen scored his first Pikes Peak victory with a 9:46. time, just 18 thousands of a second ahead of Le Mans winner Romain Dumas. You can find pictures of "Monster" Tagima's electric beast in the gallery below and let's wish him better luck for next year!
