But what is the time to beat? The speed will shock you… Take 20 minutes this morning to relive the 10 fastest four-wheeled Pikes Peak runs, beginning with Rhys Millen, who in 2015 achieved a time of 9:07.222 in a PP03 from Latvian engineering firm Drive eO. Millen features twice more in the list, setting a time of 9:02.192 in 2013 in a Hyundai RMR PM 580-T, and taking fifth place on the list in 2016, when he set a time of 8:57.118 in a Drive eO PP100.
Also on the list is nine-time World Rally Champion Sébastien Loeb, who takes second place with his 8:13.878 run in a 2013 Peugeot 208 T16 PP. But by far the standout name is Goodwood regular Romain Dumas, who takes eighth, seventh, fourth and first respectively, setting the fastest ever run of 7:57.148 in 2018, at the helm of the all-electric Volkswagen ID.R.
Welcome to Goodwood Elevenses, a mid-morning helping of motoring-related amusement to help break up your day.
