Pikes Peak: Loeb sets new record

Sebastien Loeb shattered the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb record on Sunday with a breath-taking time of 8mins 13.878secs in his Peugeot 208 T16 Pikes Peak.
The nine-time World Rally champion negotiated the 12.42 miles and 156 corners of the mountain at an average speed of 87.471mph.
Loeb’s time blitzed the previous best of 9mins 46.164secs, set by Rhys Millen last year, with the former record holder having to settle for second this time in his all-new Hyundai RMR PM580-T – 49 seconds adrift.
