Subies really can fly!!! (70' Jump)


On a cold October day, our team and a small film crew set out to attempt a sucessful rally car jump over a massive 70 foot X-Games spec gap jump in the team's newest rally car, "Godzilla"!!!!!

It was early in our gravel rally career. We had planned a Gumball STI Racing video/photo shoot to help bring awareness to our team.

We've always set our goals high and decided to step up and tackle the challenging X-Games rally car jump.

Figuring it would take time to qualify for X-Games and hit the actual jump, we decided to build our own. After months of planning and approvals we finally had access to a private testing facility and a massive 70' gap jump similar to X-Games rally.

The build was sketchy, the run-in was too short, and the landing was way too narrow...with the odds stacked against us we pushed forward to take it on!!

Red Bull, Burton Snowboards, Electric Sunglasses, and Subaru Canada all provided support for the initiative and with filming underway we nailed this 70' X-Games jump.

Subies really can fly!!!!
