Paul Dallenbach Sets New Time Attack Class Record At Pikes Peak HillClimb In Hyundai RMR Genesis Coupe Racer

PIKES PEAK, Colo., June 30, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Paul Dallenbach set a new world record in the Time Attack class at the 2013 Pikes Peak International Hill Climb on Sunday. The record was set with Dallenbach piloting the same Hyundai RMR Genesis Coupe that Rhys Millen used to set the all-time world record last year. Dallenbach set a furious pace to the summit, needing only 9:46.001 to make the full ascent.

"The Rhys Millen Racing-prepared Genesis Coupe really complemented my aggressive driving style in setting the Time Attack world record," said Dallenbach. "With some very specific adjustments to the car this year giving a more neutral handling balance, I was able to even build upon last year's world record set by Millen. It was thrilling to drive a racer that made full use of my years of experience at Pikes Peak."

HYUNDAI RMR GENESIS COUPE TIME ATTACK RACER

With the current world record in its credentials, Millen could have simply let teammate Paul Dallenbach run the RMR Genesis Coupe at Pikes Peak without upgrades for 2013. But the team saw opportunities to improve the RMR Genesis Coupe even further. A new clutch-type rear differential was fitted to reduce inside wheel spin in the tightest of Pikes hairpin turns, especially those with extreme crown affecting corner-exit acceleration. Staggered tire sizes were adjusted, with a smaller overall diameter for the front tires, effectively increasing rear-to-front rake and increasing the front tire-patch weight balance, reducing understeer. In addition, stiffer rear springs were fitted, further reducing understeer for more perfect balance.

PAUL DALLENBACH

Dallenbach is a veteran Pikes Peak racer who competed in the 2013 Pikes Peak International Hill Climb Time Attack 2WD class. He drove the same production-based Genesis Coupe that set last year's all-time world record with Rhys Millen at the helm. Paul is a local Colorado fan favorite, with a thoroughly impressive Pikes Peak resume, including six Pikes Peak class wins and three overall wins at the world's most prestigious hill climb. Paul, the younger brother of NASCAR Winston Cup Series driver Wally, was also the 1993 Pikes Peak Hill Climb Champion. His other victories include a three-time champion of the Alcan 5000 Rally.
