Scion has announced Robert Walker will compete in the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb in a Mackin Industries FR-S.
Set to compete in the Time Attack 1 Division class, the car features a turbocharged engine, a standalone ECU and an improved engine / drivetrain cooling system. The model also has an aerodynamic body kit and a number of weight saving measures.
According to Walker, "This will be my third race at Pikes Peak. Experience is especially important at an event like this. We only drive the road at speed in its entirety once each year – on race day. That can be intimidating to any driver. I’m counting on the experience the team and I have gained to give me a heads-up in the competition.”
