The main character in the new almost ten-minute clip is Travis Pastrana, a friend and rival of race car driver Ken Block, who passed all the previous Gymkhana episodes on Hoonigan channel in an extreme mode of car dance.

According to the conditions of the passage of the Gymkhana track, racermust drive at maximum speed a track dotted with various obstacles that turn the ride into an unforgettable dance of the car. It is impossible to describe this action in words - it is better to set aside 10 minutes of your time to watch an unusual, but spectacular competition demonstrating the technical power of the car and the skill of the driver.


Travis Pastrana in the new edition of Gymkhana 2020kicked off in his hometown of Annapolis, Maryland, where he first jumped in a modernized Subaru WRX STi (862 hp) over the canal, with a boat sailing along it, and then swiftly controlling the drifts and strictly fitting into the turns, swept through the streets of the town.

Along the way, Pastrana at great speed knocked downballs by car, circled around the reversal ring, made turns on the spot. Leaving the pier, he made a dance with another car, frightened the port workers, almost flew into the water and then burst out onto the runway, where he competed with a light aircraft. At the end of the show, Pastrana accelerated the Subaru to 150 mph (240 km / h) and literally took off from the prepared springboard.

Previously in the show, Subaru was only used in twofirst issues, then Ken Block rode the upgraded Ford Mustang "HooniCorn V2", Ford Fiesta WRC, Ford Escort RS Cosworth, Ford Focus RS RX and Ford F-150 "HooniTruck".
