Ken Gushi Will Drive GReddy Racing FR-S at Pikes Peak
If Gushi’s name sounds familiar to Pikes Peak fans, that’d be because he won the 2013 Exhibition Auto Class at the wheel of a Lexus ISF CCS-R. This year, he’ll be piloting the FR-S in the Time Attack 1 Division for production-based two-and four-wheelers.

Gushi knows the 12.42-mile, 156-turn course well, and he’ll be looking to make a statement from behind the wheel of one of the most exciting vehicles on the market today.
“No race on earth is quite like the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb, and I can’t wait to conquer it in a car I love: the Scion FR-S,” Gushi said. “Every turn of this course requires the best performance out of the driver and vehicle, and racing fans will love what they see.”
