As hill climbs go, the one at Pikes Peak in Colorado is considered to be one of the most intense out there, with a total distance of 12.42 miles, a 156 turns, and an elevation gain of 4,725 feet.
It’s where Randy Probst put a modified Tesla Model S Plaid in the Top 10 fastest cars and where the late Ken Block put on a great show in his Mustang. But it’s also where Rivian will make its official debut in the hill climb world with an R1T, as the Rivian Owners Forum discovered.
According to the official list of competitors invited to participate in the 101st running of the PIkes Peak International Hill Climb, a Rivian R1T will be driven by Gardner Nichols, the EV company’s Senior Performance Test Engineer, who’s a racing enthusiast, regularly posting photos and videos of his race track adventures on his Instagram account.
