…It’s Movie Monday: Subaru Rally Team USA?

Subaru WRX STi Time Lapse

Watching the time lapse of the Subaru Rally Team USA strip down a fresh from the factory WRX STi and prep it for rally racing at the hands of Travis Pastrana is a thing of beauty.

Plus, where else can you watch as 800 hours of labor flash by in the blink of an eye:

…Ken Block jumped his Subaru over 100 feet?

Ken Block Subaru Jump

Fans of rally racing (myself included) usually watch the sport for two things: the jumps, and the gnarly crashes. Sure, the racing is all fine and dandy, but it’s the jumps and the crashes that keep people coming back. Ken Block, deciding to go big rather than going home, took the former to a new level for an upcoming episode of Discovery Channel’s Stunt Junkies, jumping his Monster Energy Subaru over 100 feet (probably much more, but he can’t divulge actual footage until after the episode airs, so take your best guess). Though it’s hard to imagine just how far that really is without actually being there, judging by the pictures, I’d say the man must be insane! Thankfully, Ken managed to keep it wheel side down while setting this new record, and is hopefully working on some way of back flipping the car for his next performance. Dukes, eat your hearts out. Rally car big-air at next year’s X Games anyone?
