Randy Pobst Explains His Tesla Model 3 Crash at Pikes Peak Hill Climb [VIDEO]
After Randy Pobst dominated the lower section of the 2020 Pikes Peak Hill Climb in his Unplugged Performance Tesla Model 3, disaster struck as the car ended up crashing on day two.
Pobst released a video detailing what went wrong in his run on day two, showing viewers what led up to the crash and what was on his mind.
“After running so fast and well in Day One qualifying, Randy snaps sideways and slams the wall at Bottomless Pit corner, so named for the 1800 foot drop on the other side of said wall. Horribly disappointing after fantastic first day Tuesday in the Unplugged Performance Tesla Model 3. First run off because just too fast too soon? The bumps are massive in the top section of the Hill Climb. Feel it out first?!”, explains the video description.
