Travis Pastrana Gets Airborne In The Latest 2020 Gymkhana Drift Video

Since the release of the inaugural installment in 2008, Ken Block’s Gymkhana videos have consistently set the standard for world-class automotive video content, and while Block has previously piloted the heavily-modified featured on the Hoonigan Youtube channel, for its latest entry the Long Beach native has passed the torch to fellow motorsport and adrenaline junkie, Travis Pastrana.

For Pastrana’s Gymkhana debut, the AMA SX and MX champion has been put behind the wheel of a thoroughly-massaged Subaru WRX STI, before being unleashed upon his hometown of Annapolis, Maryland. With 862hp, 864 ft-lbs of torque, and a 50PSI boost, the 2.3L billet block boxer engine creates more than enough power and wheel-spin needed to thoroughly tear up the streets of the east coast hamlet, a feat helped along by the drift car’s active carbon fiber aero kit and race-grade braking and suspension hardware. In addition to plenty of getting sideways, Pastrana also pilots his WRX over various jumps and other obstacles in the roughly 9.5-minute feature. With any luck, this is just the first of many hair-raising Gymkhana videos with Pastrana behind the wheel.
