It’s nearly 12.5-miles long, climbing several thousand feet in elevation and over 150 turns to complete The Race to the Clouds, an annual racing event that takes place in Colorado Springs and is more professionally known as the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb. This year we made our way back with the help of Mackin Industries and Evasive Motorsports to see if our SR by Toyota 86 racecar could complete the race finally, as our team added new aero enhancements and tweaked the car’s performance for driver Robert Walker. It was not an easy week and the climb got the best of our 86 once again—but we’ll be back again next time. Watch this beautifully shot film chronicling the event, the Mackin/Evasive team and the 2JZ-powered 86 racecar.
