Welcome to Whoopocalypse Now! This is the first of an 8 episode series documenting my road to the Baja 1000. I’ll be racing with 16-year-old rising star Jax Redline, in a Trophy Truck (built by Geiser Bros) – so, to make things interesting, we’re putting Jax behind the wheel of one of my favorite rally cars (my Ford Escort Cossie V2) so that he can further his own skill set in a rally race! We’ve even wrapped it in the same “It’s A Living” livery as my Subaru STI & Tuthill Safari Porsche rally cars. – Ken Block

Subaru Motorsports USA driver, Travis Pastrana, set a new record of 5 minutes 28.67 seconds at the 2021 Mt. Washington Hillclimb on the way to an overall event victory at the wheel of the Airslayer STI, his 862-horsepower Gymkhana 2020 Subaru WRX STI.

The new mark cut more than sixteen seconds from his winning time from the 2017 running of the event up the narrow, steep and treacherous 7.6-mile Mt. Washington Auto Road. Pastrana blitzed the mountain to set a time that was over 45 seconds ahead of the second-fastest competitor.

The Mt. Washington Hillclimb, traditionally held every three years, is one of the most challenging motorsport events in the United States and the oldest hillclimb in North America. In addition to its long history, the tallest mountain on the East Coast brings famously unpredictable weather and a mixed-surface road, forcing drivers to contend with grip levels that shift suddenly from tarmac to gravel and back again in the middle of the climb. With an average grade of 12% and an uneven surface bounded by serious drops above the treeline, Mt. Washington requires courage, skill and the right equipment for the challenge.
