Spectacular crash for this Tesla Model 3 at Pikes Peak – Futura

This weekend is the traditional Pikes Peak hill climb in Colorado (United States). 19.9 kilometers, 156 turns and a single attempt: these are the drastic conditions imposed on the participants. The event is open to electric cars and an Tesla Model 3 prepared by Unplugged Performance and piloted by Randy Pobst should participate.

We use the conditional because the electric car suffered a big accident during free practice this week. The pilot is unharmed but the You're here was seriously damaged, as can be seen in these images.

The accident happened when the car got unbalanced while going over a bump in a bend. The Model 3 spinning, severely damaging the chassis, rims, rear shock absorbers, front axle … In short, major repairs are necessary so that the Unplugged Performance team can line up at the start of the race this weekend. The mechanics probably won't get much sleep. We wish them good luck and good luck!

During the 2018 edition of the Pikes Peak race, Volkswagen entered the legend of this event with its ID R prototype, which became the first electric car to beat the absolute record held by a thermal car with a lap time of 16 seconds.
