Launch Control: Road to Gymkhana

February 12, 2021

Subaru recently released “Launch Control: Road to Gymkhana,” a two-part miniseries documenting the design, build, testing and shoot of Travis Pastrana’s Gymkhana 2020 STI.

The miniseries’ first episode picks up on  Day 1 of the Annapolis shoot and tells the story of the early build in a series of flashbacks—from initial planning and design in the shadow of early COVID-19 lockdowns, to the challenge of transforming a production Subaru shell into a high-flying Gymkhana machine, including the development of a custom 862-horsepower SUBARU BOXER engine for the project.

Watch the first episode above.
