The Mt. Washington Hillclimb is over 100 years old, but it was earlier this year that driver Travis Pastrana set a new record…by breaking his old one.
In 2017, Pastrana set the record at 5 minutes, 44.72 seconds. Back in August, he shattered that record, setting a new mark by “climbing” Mt. Washington in a Subaru WRX STI powered by a turbocharged 2.3-liter flat four with 862 horsepower, as reported by WMUR.
The new record? 5 minutes, 28.67 seconds. How did he do it? By averaging 80mph on the 20mph Auto Road. Watch the white-knuckle footage below.
