Last year a modified Tesla Model 3 by Unplugged Performance driven by Randy Pobst had a comeback after crashing on the way to the top of the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb.
On Wednesday, Pobst and Unplugged Performance officially announced their Tesla Model 3 will be heading back to Pikes Peak in 2021.
After crashing and rebuilding our Model 3 race car at Pikes Peak last year, we are going back to the summit in 2021 with @RandyPobst to demonstrate the true potential of Tesla. #nevetgiveup #tesla #pikespeak #unpluggedperfomance #becauseracecar pic.twitter.com/kezYFLhDGl

In a video shared on Twitter, Pobst says “last year was a miracle comeback”, referring to how he was still able to make it to the summit, driving the repaired Model 3 to the top. Pobst says there is still “unfinished business”, as he hopes to “go for that 10-minute time” and also “win the class” this year.
“And we’re heading back to the clouds at Pikes Peak,” concluded Pobst.
Last year, in the Exhibition class, Tesla’s Model 3 came first and second, with Pobst and the Unplugged Performance landing in the second spot.
