Watch Monster Tajima tackle Pikes Peak

There can be only one King of the Hill, and that is Nobuhiro Tajima; the ‘Monster’ just beat his own personal best to claim overall victory at the annual Pikes Peak hill climb.

Held on the now-infamous Colorado mountain, Monster took his 850bhp Suzuki SX4 and gunned the 12.42mile race course (of which just three miles of unpaved surfaces remain) to register a scarcely believable time of 9m 51.28s, besting his own PB from 10m 01.41s.

Rhys Millen - son of Pikes legend Rod - returned to the mountain in his Hyundai Genesis PM580 but was beset with brake problems and settled for second place with a time of 10m 09.24s.
