Video: Subaru WRX STI on an Olympic Bobsled Run

Discussion in 'Other Vehicles' started by Nathan, Mar 17, 2017.

  1. Guest - Welcome to the new Motoring Alliance Site! Steve, MCS02 and I were up until the early hours this morning working to get it done... as you can see it took us a bit longer than expected to get Phase 1 up and running. We are not 100% there.. its a journey. For site updates, "How Do I" and feedback please use the Announcements, How Do I, Feedback Forum (Links below). Like building a car.... its never done... and thanks for your patience

    Looks like a great way to break both the car and the track....

    Still fun as hell though.

    Someone should push an F56 down that run and leave it at the bottom. :lol:

    Slower than a bobsled. Would've been more interesting going uphill.

    Brings back fond memories of Kris Meeke / James May in the MINI WRC Countryman versus Olympic Gold Medalist Amy Williams at Lilehammer...back when Top Gear was still relevant and MINI actually dabbled in WRC sponsorship...

    Dave, I believe that the F56 is more well suited for ski jumping!

    Perhaps even more well suited for ski jumping in "Agony of Defeat" style?
