Formula Cross Demos Continue At Pikes Peak

While Rhys Millen was busy conquering this year’s Pikes Peak International Hill Climb, the California-based Rhys Millen Racing team had another priority as well: demonstrating the initial Formula Cross prototype for fans and prospective competitors.

Internationally renowned stunt driver Greg Tracy, a six-time Pikes Peak class winner in various motorcycle classes, was among those to wheel the Yamaha-based 450YFC model in private testing before the event. Tracy’s son Lane, as well as fellow PPIHC competitor Layne Schranz, took turns in the new vehicle.

The test session was somewhat of a good luck charm for everyone involved. Millen set an all-time record in climbing up the mountain with a time of 9:46.164, while Tracy finished fourth overall with a time of 9:58.262 while competing in the 1205 (motorcycle) class. Schranz also took the victory in the Super Stock Car class, taking the victory over 15-time class winner Clint Vahsholtz by 15.580 seconds.

Formula Cross continues to take pre-orders for the 450YFC model. The kit price is $7,500, with a $2,500 deposit and installation services available. Specifications and ordering information are available on the Formula Cross website.

  1. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own weblog and was curious what all is required to get setup? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
    I’m not very internet savvy so I’m not 100% sure. Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated.
    Many thanks
