Rod Millen is in for the EV class. Toyota is bringing out the big guns again.


TMG is using its pioneering off-board battery-to-battery charging technology, including Schneider Electric EVlink™ DC Charger, to charge the TMG EV P002 from the mountainside, where there is no reliable connection to the power grid.

Mounted in the rear of a TOYOTA Hiace, the TMG DC Quick Charger includes a 42 kilowatt lithium ion battery, which can be charged directly from the AC power grid. After an overnight charge, the TMG DC Quick Charger is able to quickly deliver high levels of power to a battery-based electric car without additional installation or infrastructure.

With varying current and voltage output, the TMG DC Quick Charger becomes an independent source of power for rapid recharging in any location, making it the perfect solution for electric motorsport.

Damn there is just no easy way to post updates to here by phone. For those interested in the sidecar class, or the random photos I may be posting, I have some options for you.

You can find me on Facebook by looking for Johnny Killmore. My website has a link to my news page (blog) at www.johnnykillmore.com and I've also got a Twitter (https://twitter.com/JohnnyKillmore) and Instagram (http://instagram.com/johnny_killmore#).

I'm getting really good updates from fellow sidecar racers on Facebook as well. Bruno (who started this thread) is posting great updates on his Facebook page, "Les Marluches au PIKES PEAK 2013."

Japanese driver Masahito Watanabe is on Facebook also and is posting.

www.mylifeatspeed.com is Greg Trachy's official site and has many guest bloggers who race Pikes Peak on 2,3, and 4 wheels. Their Facebook page is also active. It's actually a cool website and Facebook page in general if you are into racing and extreme sport.

I'll try to post here as well, but I can post with a 3rd party app to all my other outlets, and have to make a special stop here and smugmug to upload, meaning they get the least attention. Afterall, I'm their trying to win a race; spare time is, well, sparing.

So far I've seen a string of photos of Carlin Dunne's electric bike, Greg Trachy's electric car, Masahito's sidecar, and fast qualifying times all on Facebook. Masahiro's time on the bottom section is only 6 seconds slower than my own time in last year's race, which set the class record. Wade Boyd was only 3.4 seconds behind me, so a 3-way battle for the record is feasible.

Oh yeah, Wade Boyd is also on Facebook though he updates in bursts usually. Hope this helps. And of course, on race day, www.ppihc.com has the live feed.

Cheers,
Johnny K-

Honda supporting 11 competitors in different groups is definitely good. I wonder if there will be any surprises. I don't know if any of the road is left unpaved? If not then records will obviously fall as there are less variables.

The Pikes Peak website says the race can be viewed live on redbulltv.com. Hopefully that is the case.
