Pikes Peak Toyota Tacoma Too Powerful? How is that possible?
When MillenWorks took their Pikes Peak Toyota Tacoma driven by Rod Millen to the Goodwood Festival of Speed it looked like it might have been a little too powerful for the course! Or maybe the track conditions hindered them a bit. Either way, it is a cool video to see.
According to MillenWorks, “The Pikes Peak Toyota Tacoma was designed as an evolution of the record holding Pikes Peak Toyota Celica. Lessons learned in suspension, engine tuning, drivetrain, structural stiffness/weight, and aerodynamics were applied to the Tacoma in order to improve performance. Race conditions, however, have hindered efforts to set a new world record with this vehicle.”
The Festival of Speed is an annual event held at the Goodwood Estate, Chichester, West Sussex, England. It is “a unique summer weekend that brings together an impossibly heady mix of cars, stars and motor sport ‘royalty’ to create the largest car culture event in the world.” The 2012 event will be held June 28 thru July 1.
The driver, Rod Millen, is a legend in rally racing holding several records at the famous Pikes Peak Hill Climb. Orginally a trained surveyor from New Zealand with an interest in beach buggy driving, he said “I came to enjoy sliding my car around on those dirt roads.” He has been a driver ever since.
