I am over joyed that Gymkhana is back, but even more that Subaru is BACK!!!! I loved everything about this video and stoked about the product placement for the new BRZ. Drifting with Pastrana…the G.O.A.T. He has taken over this edition of Gymkhana and destroys it! So much energy and the stunts are on another level. Ooooh and the jumps!!! I’m sure they have set some sort of a record for distance and speed launching at ~145mph. Sweet lawd give the Gymkhana team a plaque and a standing ovation as this is a great way to close out 2020.
This morning I was scrolling through Facebook and came across this video posted by Top Gear. It features world famous drifter Mad Mike and his 812hp RHD 20B 3-rotor SP3 Mazda RX8 drift car cleverly named BADBUL due to its prowess on the track and his sponsorship with Red Bull.
The video is reminiscent of Japan’s infamous “Togue” which simply means “pass”, a form of hillside/mountain racing made famous over there. Mike is dropped off in the South Africa near Cape Town to run his beast of a Mazda up Franschhoek Pass in this epic visual drift demonstration.
Peep the heart-stopping hairpin drift. You can see the Ken Block Gymkhana influence to live on the edge…literally.
