As drivers begin driving and climbing toward the summit, the air becomes thinner which slows their reflexes and saps their muscle strength. Furthermore, the thin air is lowering the engine’s power by 30 percent. Current record for it was set in 2013 by Sebastien Loeb at 8:13.878.

With the extreme level of difficulty to complete Pikes Peak, it is requiring any driver to have serious amount of focus, sheer guts and also, tenacity in order to conquer the track. Keep in mind, just a minute mishap could cost you to tumble off a cliff and cost your life. There is a reason why it’s being called as “The Devil’s Playground”.
