Watch ‘Gymkhana 2022’ with Travis Pastrana’s Insane 862-HP Subaru Wagon

The year 2008 marked the internet’s first peek inside the wild interworkings of the brain of rally-star and DC Shoes co-founder Ken Block. As deeply as his viral Gymkhana videos left their primordial tire marks on abandoned runways, so too grew the insanity of the stunts.

One of the biggest downsides of modern motorsport is the extremely tight regulations that prevent manufacturers from flexing their muscles and showing what they can really do when given a blank sheet of paper.
