Ride on the bumper of a screaming 910hp, Twin-turbo, All-wheel Drive, 150 mph Suzuki SX4 as it races up one of the world's most dangerous hills. An attempt by the "Monster" to break his own record of 10:01:41...
COLORADO SPRINGS, CO (June 29, 2010) -- For the fifth consecutive time, Nobuhiro "Monster" Tajima combined experience, skill and Falken Tires to claim overall victory in the 88th running of the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb.
Although he did not set a new Pikes Peak record, one day before his 60th birthday, Tajima continues to hold the current overall record for reaching the peak, beating hill climb veterans Paul Dallenbach and Rhys Millen in the Unlimited Class. He drove his new 910-hp Monster Sport Suzuki SX4 Hill Climb Special on Falken WildPeak A/T tires, the powerful new line of all-terrain, all-season tires Falken launched this past April.
Following Exhaustive tests in a Japanese wind tunnel facility, Monster's 2010 Pikes Peak race car underwent extensive aerodynamic changes to better adapt to the modified road surface on the race to the clouds, which assumed a smoother tarmac and less gravel than last year. Thinning air ascending the mountain robs most motors of their power by 30 or more percent, but the increase in horsepower over last year's race car helped push the driver forward.

Red Bull Terramar: Los motores rugen de nuevo en el circuito de la primera carrera de España
Es desconocido para muchos, incluidos los amantes de los coches. El circuito de Terramar es la segunda más antigua de Europa después de Brooklands y por delante incluso del mítico Le Mans, y el primero en España. En este ambiente único que conserva la grandeza que alguna vez tuvo, dos de los mejores pilotos del momento, Carlos Sainz y Miguel Molina, pusieron a prueba sus habilidades como conductores. El reto: superar los rigores de la vieja pista al volante de uno de los coches más rápidos de la época (Audi R8 LSM).
En un momento en que los coches tenían que ponerse en marcha con la ayuda de personas externas, circuito de Terramar fue conocido por sus 90 grados de la banca. "Fue una sorpresa y una grande. No tenía idea de que este lugar existía y, menos aún, que era la pista por primera vez en España que se haya construido. La banca es enorme, sobre todo cuando se ve desde abajo. Tengo que reconocer que cuando me primera vez que vi me sorprendió y fue muy curioso por saber lo que era conducir en él. Nunca antes me había hecho un circuito oval con una banca como esta. fue muy especial ", dice Carlos Sainz, uno de los mejores españoles los pilotos de la historia.
Sainz experimentado este día de contrastes, con una de las estrellas jóvenes de motor español, el catalán Miguel Molina, piloto de DTM. "Para conducir un vehículo en un circuito como este, dañado por el paso del tiempo, fue un gran reto. Fuimos puestos a prueba constantemente por la dificultad de diseño y las chicanes, que no podía perder la concentración ni un solo minuto." agregó Molina.
Ahora puedes ver este y otros contendios dentro de nuestra plataforma del Canal PRMotor TV para toda España x TV!

Rhys Millen's Pikes Peak World Record Attempt
On June 27, 2010, Rhys Millen attempted to beat the current "Unlimited Class" World Record of 10:01.408 at the 88th running of the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb, the "Race to the Clouds." For 10 years, it has been Rhys' dream to break the 10-minute barrier and this year he hoped to capture the elusive record and return it to the Millen name. This is look at his run and the challenges he faced in his custom built Genesis PM580: a 1,850 pound, 750 horse power V6 designed specifically to conquer the 156 turns of this 12.52 mile course (of which this year, half is pavement) that begins at 9,390 feet and finishes at the 14,110 foot summit.
