Video: Tajima storms Pikes Peak with the Rimac 1.1 megawatt racer

Nobuhiro ‘Monster’ Tajima celebrated his 65th birthday by finishing second overall on the 93rd Pikes Peak International Hill Climb 2015 on June 28th. Despite suffering a failure on the mechanical brakes, the clock stopped at 9:32.401. Tajima outperformed all cars with a combustion engine with the 1.1 megawatt strong “Tajima Rimac E-Runner Concept_One”.

“Since we are partnered with the Croatian company Rimac Automobili in order to pursue development of ultimate vehicle control, their torque vectoring system worked beautifully. Despite the fact the mechanical brakes were lost, I was still able to surpass my time set last year by 11 seconds,” knew Tajima.

Have a look at his run (see video).
