The 2014 running of the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb, which took place this weekend, waived its checkered flag over six competitors that completed the course in under 10 minutes and documented four new records. This year’s trophy was taken home by French driver Romain Dumas, who raced up the mountain in 9:5.801 in his Unlimited-class 2013 Norma.
A little more than two seconds behind Dumas came Greg Tracy. The U.S.-born driver needed 9:08.188 minutes to complete 12.42-mile course in the all-electric Mitsubishi MiEV Evolution III . Tracy not only won the Electric Modified class, but also became the first competitor in Pikes Peak history to finish under the 10-minute mark on a motorcycle and in a car. Right behind Tracy arrived Hiroshi Masuoka, also driving a MiEV Evolution III. The Japanese driver ran the 156-turn course in 9:12.204 minutes to give Mitsubishi a spectacular 1-2 class and 2-3 overall finish, respectively.
Three more drivers took the checkered flag in less than 10 minutes: Clint Vahsholtz (Ford, 9:54.700), Michael Skeen (Nissan , 9:55.471), and Jeremy Toye (Kawasaki, 9:58.678). They all scored victories in the Open Wheel, PPC Open and Motorcycle Open categories, respectively.
