Colorado Springs – June 26 – Jeff Zwart, from Woody Creek, Colo., sliced more than 24 seconds off his Time Attack 2WD class record from last year, setting an all-time record for a street-legal car at Pikes Peak, but it wasn’t quite enough to beat mentor and old friend Rod Millen, who drove a full-blown race car up the mountain three seconds faster.
Zwart, driving a Porsche 911 GT2 RS street car which he drove from Los Angeles to the event (video link below), had yielded the last starting position to Millen by 1.5 seconds on Friday in qualifying, and knew he would not know Rod’s time as he headed up the hill.

we now have the fastest street-legal car ever to climb Pikes Peak. We broke last year’s record by 24 seconds, but we fell three seconds short of beating an all-out race car that is hundreds of pounds lighter with no street safety or emission equipment.

Congrats to Jeff for beating last years time and for doing it in a daily driven GT2!!! They now have the fastest street-legal car ever to climb Pikes Peak but fell three seconds short of beating an all-out race car that is hundreds of pounds lighter with no street safety or emission equipment.
