AutoComplete: Bentley's new Continental is the new production car king of Pikes Peak
Here's what's making news on road show.
One of the things that we are most excited to see at the 97th running of the Pikes Peak international hillclimb was Bitly and driver Reese melons attempt on the overall production car record.
Millen's weapon of choice was a new Bentley continental GT an essentially stock configuration.
And with it he was able to shave eight point four seconds off the record.
Completing his run of America's mountain in just ten minutes eighteen point four eight, eight seconds.
EV's have a ton of benefits.
They're efficient And clean and torquey and they're near silent.
That last one's usually cool, but there are some unfortunate side effects, especially for pedestrians and cyclists.
To help combat this, the European Union is mandating that EVs on public roads make noise at speeds below 12 miles per hour.
It's not made expressly clear what the noise needs to be.
It could be yakity-saks if the proper licensing was secured.
But, it'll be interesting to see if this catches on here in the US.
Mazda just issued a recall for approximately 25,000 2019 Mazda 3 sedans and hatchbacks over concerns that their back wheels could fall right off.
The issue stems from a manufacturing error with the wheel bolts and the vehicle's hub assembly.
This can leave a gab, which would cause the lug nuts to loosen and, well you know, you get the idea.
The fix should be relatively simple considering that it only requires that a tech re-torque the lug nuts.
Mazda will send out the recall notice to affected owners starting in early August.
