Check out exclusive in-car point-of-view video of Subaru Rally Team USA driver Travis Pastrana sliding to victory at the 2010 SnoDrift Rally, Round 1 of the 2010 Rally America National Championship! The Sno*Drift Rally was held on over 130 miles of snow and ice-covered roads in northern Michigan. The forest roads were a virtual skating rink after recent warm weather melted the snow cover which then refroze this past week, leaving the roads covered in a thick sheet of ice. Rally America rules prohibit the use of spiked or studded ice-tires, placing a high premium on traction.
Pastrana, the defending four-time Rally America National Champion, won by over one minute and thirty seconds driving an open class rally specification 2010 Subaru Impreza WRX STI. In an amazing show of determination and grit, Pastrana completed the event nursing an extremely sore collarbone which he broke in a motocross accident less than a week ago. Calling the stage notes is Pastrana’s long time co-driver Christian Edstrom.
