It is a Subaru and Travis Pastrana is behind the wheel. You are looking here at a 600 hp Subaru WRX STI rally car breaking the record of the hill climb at the Mt. Washington. Travis did the deed passing the 7.6 miles of Mt. Washington in 5 minutes and 44.72 seconds. With the last record at the track set by David Higgins in 2014 at 6:09.9, Travis, obviously made it much tougher for anyone else to beat it.
Interestingly enough, the Mt. Washington Hillclimb is not as popular as the Pikes Peak Hillclimb although the race has its roots all the way back in 1904 when it all started. Watching Pastrana’s record run up Mount Washington Hillclimb will show you that this piece of race has a whole lot of challenging roads and challenging passes looking rather incredible from the position of a man driving a 600hp Subaru WRX STI over it.
The most damning thing of it all was the part where Travis drove flat out with only inches away from the cliffs. Now, that takes some balls and courage. And then just watch it through and see where the man waved to a bystander despite racing and focusing crazy on the road.
