Update on Pikes Peak International Hill Climb
Day 3 of the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb race has passed and Randy Pobst finished 1st in class in a qualifying run as he and other race teams are pushing the limits to what their cars and drivers can do on the Pikes Peak roadway-turned-race track this early summer.
Randy Pobst was kind enough to provide his fans with a video put to music showing viewers what he sees as he races up Pikes Peak as he and his team pushes a Tesla Model S Plaid upgraded by Unplugged Performance, to its limits in preparation for the final race on Sunday.
After the music-enhanced practice run, Randy talks about some problems he is having controlling his car and how he finds that his Yokohama racing slicks are handling from the excess weight of the Tesla.
That said, here is the video, so sit back and enjoy the music and view, but give yourself at least a few minutes before stepping into your own Tesla after watching the video…you’ll see what I mean.
