VIDEO: Watch This Mitsubishi Evo Rock a Hill Climb
Roger Feghali, a Lebanese rally car driver, took on the Arsoun Hill Climb in his home country earlier this month. Behind the wheel of a sexy Lancer Evo VI, Feghali showcases why hill climbing is such a wonderful racing event to watch—just listen to the sounds the Evo makes on its way up! The rally car driver’s skills shouldn’t be too shocking, since his day job is modifying cars in Beirut for rally use.
It should come as no surprise that Feghali walked away with a win at the June 6th race.
So, now that you’ve checked out the Evo completely rock that hill climb, it’s time to focus your attention and gird your loins for Pikes Peak. The race is entering its 100th year—keep in mind it’s not consecutive, thanks to some wars—officially on June 26th. And it might just be one of the most exciting years yet. It will be interesting to see what the race’s lineup—which is becoming more electric vehicle-focused each year—will hold up to the summit’s thin air.
