Pikes Peak Teaser

SUMP

After missing last year’s Pikes Peak International Hill Climb – this year I’m back on the mountain.

Since February, 2013 I’ve been working with Rhys Millen Racing and Hyundai to create a series documenting Rhys Millen’s return to the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb. Last year 2012, Rhys Millen set the all-time record at Pikes Peak in his multi faceted Hyundai Genesis Coupe – a car I’m familiar with from covering Formula Drift and Rhys in 2009 as he set the Time Attack Class record. Rhys’ new machine for 2013, shares the same engine as his winning Genesis Coupe, but inside of a prototype chassis with a larger turbo.

Continuing the Pikes Peak Film series with Jeff Zwart and Porsche.

In 2010 and 2011, I worked with director/racer Jeff Zwart to create 3 different films documenting his runs up the mountain. 2010 saw his GT3 Cup car breaking the Time Attack record set the previous year by Rhys Millen. 2011 was a different type of challenge and involved Jeff driving his competition car – a Porsche 911 GT2 RS from Santa Ana, California to Manitou Springs, Colorado to compete in the hill climb.
