Video: Rhys Millen preparing for the 2011 Pikes Peak Hill Climb

Red Bull Hyundai Genesis RMR PM580

Rhys Millen will return to the 89th Pikes Peak International Hill Climb to complete the job he set out to finish last year – shattering the record in the “Unlimited” class.

Rhys hopes that modifications and upgrades to the Red Bull Hyundai Genesis RMR PM580, along with new tarmac portions of the course, will help him claim victory at this year’s race. The Hyundai Genesis RMR PM580 is powered by a 4.1L Hyundai Lambda turbocharged V6 making 750-hp, but the model will be limited at 675-hp.

The current record still stands at 10:01.408. Can Rhys do it? Here’s how he’s preparing.
