Join driver Rhys Millen (NZ) on board the Bentley Continental GT as a new outright record for production cars is set by 8.4 seconds. A camera mounted to Rhys’ race helmet reveals footage from a driver’s point-of-view as he tackles the 156 corners, climbing almost 5,000ft in 10m18.488s.

A second film released today covers Bentley’s event highlights from the race build-up, helicopter footage of the run and post-race reactions from the Bentley team and Rhys Millen.

The Pikes Peak project was supported by Bentley’s technical partners Mobil1, Lifeline, Brembo SGL Group and Pirelli, and by exhaust partner Akrapovič.
