Watch Mitsubishi break the EV record at Pikes Peak
Take a listen folks – you’re hearing the eventual future of motorsports. This is Greg Tracy and the Mitsubishi MiEV Evolution III as they assault the treacherous course at Pikes Peak in just 9:08.188.
This run is significant for a number of reasons. As we recapped in our Pikes Peak finale post, Tracy’s run was a mere two seconds off the best overall time at this year’s event, snagging him and Mitsubishi second place overall, as well as first in the Electric Modified class and the fourth fastest time ever recorded. Perhaps more importantly, though, Tracy thoroughly trounced the previous EV record at Pikes Peak, beating the legendary Nobuhiro “Monster” Tajima’s 2013 best of 9:46.530.
It’s an impressive feat, and now you can experience the whole run from as near a first-person viewpoint as you’re going to get. Scroll down and have a look.
