On September 8th, rally driver Travis Pastrana cracked off a 6 minute 20.5 second climb up New Hampshire's Mount Washington, breaking the old record by more than 20 seconds. Consider us impressed. Even more inspiring: Pastrana broke the record on his first try. Practice? Who needs practice? Especially when you're driving a Vermont SportsCar-prepped Subaru STI rally car and have the good folks at Red Bull keeping you funded and hyper-caffeinated. Oh, and any West Coasters who glaze over at the mention of any mountain east of the Mississippi, the Mount Washington Auto Road features more than 100 turns during its 4,618 foot climb to the 6,288 foot summit.
Of course, hearing about the record-setting run is all fine and dandy, but watching it is far better—so feast your eyes on this nice little video of Pastrana's hard-core uphill blast. Our only question: Will Pastrana now slap one of these stickers on his rally car?
