Watch Rhys Millen Set His Pikes Peak World Record


This is what going fast up a dangerous hill looks like from the driver's seat.
Just a few days ago drift legend Rhys Millen set a new world record at the annual Pikes Peak Hill Climb. He managed to pull off an amazing feat by completing the difficult climb in less than 10 minutes, 9:46.164 to be precise. To give you an idea as to how difficult it was to do this, it was only five seconds ahead of last year's record time. The 12.42-mile course consisted of plenty of difficult turns and twists as drivers edged their way up 4,720 feet to a total ascent of more than 14,000 feet.
Although this year the course is entirely covered in asphalt, as opposed to the partial gravel in the past which many correctly argue is an even greater challenge, Millen still accomplished his much desired goal.
