For those unfamiliar with Gymkhana is a YouTube series in which Ken Block – or Pastrana, this time – pushes the limits of auto stunts, stringing drifts through narrow complexes or jumping over low-flying planes. altitude. Each develops the madness, with 12 years of one-upmanship leading to some truly spectacular scenes. The 2020 episode carries the torch, this time with Block’s rival Travis Pastrana in the spotlight.
It starts in Annapolis with a high-altitude jump over a speedboat crossing the river. Because of this and the part later in the video where Pastrana plunges a wheel off a dock and swings over the water, you can see supplemental oxygen mounted in the door panel of the Subaru. . Even the best sometimes get it wrong. The rest of the video follows him through the crowded city streets, in a tandem drift with the 2022 Subaru BR-Z near the docks, and through a 150mph jump outside of the childhood home of Pastrana.
All of this is accomplished in a 2.3-liter, turbocharged, 862 horsepower Subaru WRX STI rally car producing 664 lb-ft of torque. It takes 50 psi of boost to get those numbers on a 2.3, but the engine is still running at 8,000 rpm. It would still make the thing a rocket, but for good measure Subaru outfitted it with a carbon fiber body, active aerodynamics, and upgraded tires. This allows for some of the best four-wheeled slides you’ve ever seen, making the video definitely worth watching.
