In 2013 Ken Gushi of Formula Drift fame, won his rookie effort at the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb’s Exhibition Auto Class in a Lexus ISF CCS-R. This year he returned to America’s Mountain to contest the Time Attack 1 class in a specially-prepared 2013 Scion FR-S. In this onboard video, we see what the popular driver did with 500 horsepower and 480 pound-feet of torque at his disposal. By day’s end Gushi scored a 3rd place in the class, sharing the podium with winner Vincent Beltoise and runner-up, Pikes Peak veteran, Jeff Zwart.

Watch Ken Gushi race up Pikes Peak from his POV helmet cam. The best part is around the 5:00 minute mark when he reaches the “W” section after the half way point. Notice him starting to use the e-brake to drift through the corners. Ken finished the course in 10:30.188 coming in 3rd out of 18 entries in the Time Attack 1 Class. The crowd definitely loved his run the most. More video with exterior shots and interviews coming soon to GTChannel.
