Video: Monster Tajima and the Falken Team at Pikes Peak

Sport Published the 08/02/2011

Pikes Peak is the most extreme hill race in the world. “Monster Tajima" has dominated the race for 5 successive years at the wheel of a Suzuki shod with Falken tyres.

156 bends, 19.93 km long, a 1440 meter climb, alternating paved and gravel roads, not to mention changing weather conditions…. Evidently, Pikes Peak is a racing course unlike any other.

For several years now, Tajima has been the undisputed champion of the race, dominating it single-handedly and holding the world record.

As we wait for the 2011 edition, which will take place on June 26th, here is a video showing the Japanese driver’s performance behind the wheel of his 1190 kg, twin-turbo V6 897 HP Suzuki SX4.

This thoroughbred is shod by Falken Wildpeak A/T tyres that are developed specifically for the demands placed on them by such a powerful vehicle, and also for the specific demands of this unique race.
