2015 Scion FR-S Pikes Peak Racer Revealed

Today marks race day for the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb 2015 and the car set to be driven by respected time attack competitor Robert Walker has been revealed. Walker’s specially designed Scion FR-S comes courtesy of Evasive motorsports, GReddy Racing and Mackin Industries.

The car is competing in the Time Attack 1 Division for production-based two and four-wheel drive cars. The car was initially unveiled at SEMA in late 2013 but since then, has undergone a range of upgrades in the lead up to this year’s ‘Race to the Clouds’.

Discussing this year’s Pikes Peak, Walker said “This will be my third race at Pikes Peak. Experience is especially important at an event like this. We only drive the road at speed in its entirety once each year – on race day. That can be intimidating to any driver. I’m counting on the experience the team and I have gained to give me a heads-up in the competition.”

Beneath the skin, the Mackin FR-S unsurprisingly features a host of bespoke parts. For example, it includes a larger turbocharger, improved engine and drivetrain cooling systems, an E85 fuel system and a custom ECU. A range of new aerodynamic components have also been fitted.
