2014 Pikes Peak Intl. Hill Climb, June 27 - Practice Day 3

Thursday, June 27, TEAM APEV revisits the middle section of the Pikes Peak course once again.
Technical data has been accumulated with many trials of various vehicle settings. By running the middle section again, it provided much insight in which direction to take.

5:30AM start, the weather was cloudy without worry of rain. As the middle section is relatively short, the team had the opportunity to run 5 laps.
Monster Tajima on board the E-RUNNER Pikes Peak Special carefully and accurately carries the machine around each corner to check and confirm the aerodynamics and suspension settings.
The results were apparent in the clocked times as they were a drastic improvement over the times clocked on the first day.

Trouble in the brake balance ensued after the first lap and soon went off the scale and hindered efforts to improve on time however, the team was able to confirm they were taking the tuning in the right direction.
The team prepares to use tomorrow's maintenance day effectively and fully prepare for the final race.

The 92nd Pikes Peak International Hill Climb race final will commence on Sunday June 29th, at 8AM.
The finals will start with the bike program followed by the car program. Monster Tajima piloting the E-RUNNER Pikes Peak Special will start 4th in line in the car program.

[Monster Tajima comments]
""So today was day 3 practice, our second time on the middle section.We were able to tune the car to a point and see improvement on time. However I am still not satisfied and I will work with the staff on Saturday to bring the E-RUNNER to its best condition.
Nevertheless, I am pleasantly surprised that electric cars have covered 2nd to 4th place of the qualifying standings. This is a good sign that the era of electric vehicles is approaching. I would be much pleased for our campaign in promoting electric vehicles, would stimulate awareness and invite more people to the cause.
We will challenge the finals on Sunday and I thank and wish for all the support and cheers."
