King of the Hill Returns

New Zealand racing legend Rod Millen “conqueror of Pikes Peak – the world’s ultimate hillclimb event, is one of those rare men who competes in cars that he conceived and built.” Millen, “a firm favourite with the crowd” returns this year to The Goodwood Festival of Speed, which takes place from 11-14 July. “Millen has brought both of his Toyota-powered cars to Goodwood on multiple occasions. Whether in the Pikes Peak Celica or the absurdly wonderful Pikes Peak Tacoma pickup truck, Millen is unflinching in his dedication to getting from start to finish as fast as is superhumanly possible. Whenever he gets in a car the results are utterly gob-smacking.”
