Video: Nobuhiro “Monster” Tajima – Pikes Peak International Hillclimb

Failed to improve the record time set by himself in 2007 (10:01:408), but Nobuhiro “Monster” Tajima still got the victory in the 2010 Pikes Peak International Hillclimb completing the ascent of the mountain in 10’11″490, 28 seconds faster than Paul Dallenbach on a prototype Chevrolet and 55 seconds faster on Rhys Millen in a Hyundai RMR JE09. Nobuhiro Monster Tajima showed disappointment at not breaking the barrier of 10 minutes, despite “the car went really well. I’m faster.” The Japanese driver raced at the wheel of a prototype bodywork inspired by the Suzuki SX4, weighing  1,190 kgs and equipped with a 3.1 V6 twin turbo 900 bhp and 890Nm torque.
