I forgot to pay attention to pike's peak this year, so it was a shock (npi) to learn first and second overall were electric! Millens car makes over 1300 hp. The win was still about a minute off the course record, but electrics have made amazing progress and it is probably only a matter of a few years before they are untouchable. Also Millen said the car was capable of going 30 seconds quicker as it is, but they had a motor problem. The in-car is weird, it's so calm and quiet it looks like a sunday drive.

Here is the current record run, Loeb in 2013. I saw 240+ km/hr several times, about 160 mph. Heck he goes around corners at 160 km/ 100 mph. Millen's crew needs much better video recording like Loeb's.
