Tajima returns to the Race to the Clouds with a modified Toyota GT-86.
You may recognize the name Nobohiro Tajima. Known by his nickname Monster, he’s a veritable icon in hillclimb racing. Tajima held the record at Pikes Peak until Rhys Millen snapped it from him last year, but despite the 62 years he has under his six-point racing belt, you know he’ll be back at it again to reclaim his honor. And this is apparently the vehicle with which he will do it. Though Monster has typically been associated with Suzuki, this year he’ll be doing it in a customized Toyota GT-86.
We’ve got little to go on, but the Super 86 project apparently includes extreme aero, a jacked-up suspension, central driving position and mid-mounted engine. In other words, it may look like the GT-86, but in reality it’s a fire-breathing dragon. Watch this space for more as this is just the first in a five-part reveal.
