Look Back At Loeb’s Record Run

It has been a pretty spectacular 7 days for Romain Dumas. He won Le Mans and last Sunday he won the 2016 Pikes Peak International Hill Climb. Driving a Norma M20 prototype developed by his RD Limited label, Dumas won with a time of 8 minutes, 51.445. For those of you keeping track at home that is the 2nd fastest time up Pikes Peak. Pretty spectacular in its own right. However that is 38 seconds slower than Sébastien Loeb’s record run in 2013 is a spectacular unicorn moment in Motorsports. 8 minutes 13.878 seconds looks fairly unbreakable. Lets take a look back at one of the pinnacle moments in Motorsports history.
