Pike's Peak is Electric
EVs are everywhere, braking their own records for now but I wonder how long it will be before they are faster than internal combustion cars.
Nobuhiro Monster Tajima, the ninja of Pikes Peak, driving the Team APEV Monster Sport E-Runner prototype will almost certainly pulverize the current Electric Vehicle record of 14:33 set last year by a Nissan Leaf.
Nürburgring EV lap record, not to mention a electrified e36 M3 and entries from Mitsubishi but "Monster" has experience on his side.
Sunday is when it counts.
