Monster Nobuhiro Tajima Suzuki

Monster Nobuhiro Tajima held onto his title as the king of the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb by scoring his sixth straight victory this Sunday, in breaking the 10-minute barrier.

Tajima’s Suzuki Hill Climb Special recorded a time of 9 minutes, 51.28 seconds. Many drivers have been attempting to break the record that was set by Rod Millen, a 5-time champion of the Unlimited class, won in 10:04.06 in 1994.

Rhys Millen, Rod Millen’s son, came in 2nd at 10:09.24, followed by Jean Philippe Dayraut, who came in 3rd with a time of 10:17.71.

The 89th edition of the Pikes Peak Hill Climb will be the last before the entire 12.42 mile course is covered with asphalt pavement.
