Video: Pikes Peak preparation in a Hyundai

Updated: 


With the next Pikes Peak hillclimb almost upon us, Red Bull has released this video of Rhys Millen gearing up for his new assault on the 'Unlimited' class record.

Last year's event proved a frustrating affair for the veteran racer, who had multiple problems with his Hyundai Genesis RMR. Millen will hope those issues have finally been resolved when he lines up at the bottom of the 12-mile run next weekend.

It'll be a family affair for the Kiwi driver as this year he has invited his father, Rod Millen (whose own Pikes Peak record stood for well over a decade) to race in the Time Attack 2WD class.
