Update of July 1st article with a video of Lightning Motorcycle's record

The past weeks, we presented cars and motorcycles that were about to compete in this 91st Pikes Peak Hill Climb. After practice and qualifying last week, the official event was held yesterday, it crowns Monster Tajima with the E-Runner and Carlin Dunne on Lightning Motorcycles in the EV category, but not only!


Monster Tajima and the Team APEV under the 10 at 09:46.530!

The E-Runner found the reliability that lacked last year, leaving the talent of Nobuhiro Tajima speak with an historic shift for an EV, under the 10 minutes!

In second and third comes the two Mitsubishi i-Miev Evolution II prototypes 10:21.866 and 10:23.649, then the TMG EV P002 at 10:24.301, the eO PP01 crashed halfway (video below).

Lightning Motorcycles, just a few tenths away!

First place and not only as electric for Lightning Motorcycles, indeed the characteristics of the bike and testing foreshadowed it, but the final result is above expectations, no new record itself, but Carlin is ahead of theis year's first combustion motorcycle at 10:00.694
