Winning at Pikes Peak 2012 - HRE Wheels
Pikes Peak International Hill Climb 2012 has come to an end. All the competitors have overcome huge obstacles and challenges. But in the end, they all walked away having challenged the feared and exhausting beast known as the mountain. The fully paved surface has changed the event for a new generation.
HRE Wheels acquired a new record year thanks to Rhys Millen's record setting time of 9:46.164 in his Hyundai Genesis Coupe equipped with HRE C90. Finishing 1st in his Time Attack class and his new world record.
Monster Tajima had some of the best times during practice. His new E-runner all-electric vehicle equipped with HRE P43S Tajima Specials, suffered a fire on race day and he was unable to finish. His head is high as he prepares his attack on the mountain next year.
Also, newcomers to the mountain, LoveFab featuring driver navigator couple Cody Loveland and Tabitha Lohr came in 2nd for the Unlimited class in a fully fabricated Acura NSX featuring the all-new HRE C96S 6-spoke wheel. To celebrate the moment Cody proposed to his lovely navigator and won a place in her heart.
We encourage all racers to congradulate everyone involved in this amazing event and look forward to newcomers in the years to come.

Just want to point out this is with the road now being paved. We'll see all kinds of records falling now!
Much respect to HRE for providing the shoes for the overall record setting car. Love that it was on the same rims I own. Just goes to show the quality level and that they are tested under the most stringent of conditions.
