Romain Dumas at Pikes Peak with Ford: “We would like to go faster than with the van”

Holder of the Pikes Peak record since 2018 with, for the first time in history, a time under 8 minutes, the Alésien will participate on June 23 in his 9th race towards the clouds. After the electric Ford Transit SuperVan last year, the 46-year-old jack of all trades will this time operate the even more extreme Ford F-150 Lightning SuperTruck.

Were you surprised when you discovered your new frame?

(He laughs) Ah yes, I didn't expect that! Afterwards, people laughed when they saw the van arrive because they thought it was a van, but when it was in action, they were obviously very surprised.

It's a huge machine, isn't it?

The problem is that this pickup is even longer than the Transit. He measures 6 meters! When the front axle comes out of a hairpin, the rear is not there
