You want quick? THIS is quick - Ford RS200 test runs for Pikes Peak - taking on Loeb


Recommended Posts

Sebastien Loeb demolished the Pikes Peak record with an 8:13.878 taking one minute and 33 seconds off last year's record :eek: Rhys Millen set the time to beat in 2012 with a 9:46.164. Loeb just ran the mountain in 8:13.878, which not only makes him the only member of the Eight-Minute Club ever, it beats last year's record by more than 15 percent.

More perspective: Millen followed Loeb and set a time of 9:02.192 at an average speed of 79.677 miles per hour, meaning he took almost 44 seconds off his own best time and still came in second by 49 seconds, due to Loeb's average speed of 87.471 over the 12.72-mile course.
