Pastrana Debuts New 2011 X Games Rally Car + Video

June 21, 2011 1:10pm
Carlsbad, CA Travis Pastrana is excited to debut his new 2011 WRX STi that he will be racing at this year’s X Games RallyCross competition. This will mark his fifth time competing in the Rally series at X Games. Pastrana has already set two world records in his Subaru WRX STi, attained four Rally America Series Championships (’06-’09) and is looking to win his third Rally Gold this summer at X Games 17 in Los Angeles.  In addition to X Games, Pastrana will participate in the East African Safari Rally later this year in support of www.race4change.com.

There is no better way to launch new rally car livery than spoofing the king of viral videos, Ken Block. After Block dished it out in his Gymkhana Grid video by calling out Travis for “forgetting how to turn right”, it is Pastrana’s turn for some friendly revenge.

“Ken is a master at marketing and punked me pretty well late last year.  When the opportunity to spoof one of his ever successful viral videos arose, I jumped at the chance!  My only fear is that I may have started something here!” said the ever energetic Pastrana.

Watch the video to see Pastrana’s attempt at the Ken Block formula for a successful viral video.  Hot Chicks + Cool Car = maximum views.
