Rod Millen, one of the Pikes Peak Hill Climb’s living legends, will once again return to compete at the second oldest motorsports race but this time in the Time Attack 2WD class. He will be driving his son's, Rhys Millen, Hyundai Genesis Coupe with the target to once again set a record on that famous mountain.
Rhys' 2009 two-wheel drive record of 12:09, which was achieved with his Hyundai Genesis drift car, was broken last year by Jeff Zwart in a Porsche cup car with a time of 11:31. Rod Millen is looking to break the record once again this year.
With Rhys back in the unlimited classed Hyundai Genesis RMR PM580 and Nobuhiro 'Monster' Tajima back in his hill climb Suzuki Swift, this year's Pikes Peak event is shaping up to something to definitely look forward to.
