There isn’t much to see but sky clear when you’re sitting in a vehicle scaling up a 45-degree ramp. You can’t see the road, which means you can’t see where you are going. And this was exactly what the brave customers of Mitsubishi experienced at the recent ‘Mitsubishi Red Peak Challenge’. This event was inspired by the company’s recent victory at the 2014 Pikes Peak International Hill Climb.

Customers who attended the Mitsubishi Red Peak Challenge saw the Triton pick-up, the Pajero Sport SUV and the ASX Compact SUV being put through their paces on the purpose-built Mitsubishi truck featuring a wide range of obstacles including a 45-degree, 25-feet tall “sky” ramp that points upwards to the sky – an extreme test for any 4x4 vehicle. Those who were brave enough to ride in the Pajero Sport experienced just how challenging the giant ramp was to man and machine. Once up there, those brave souls were got to a unique bird’s eye view of the surroundings.

Other challenges include the roller ramp test that will see the 4x4 vehicles “drive through” the Red Peak Challenge truck as well as the side traverse and uneven ramp tests.

The event made toured around the Peninsula Malaysia and stopped at selected hotspots in Penang, Petaling Jaya, Johor Bahru and Kelantan.
