This Is Why A Rally Subaru STI, Travis Pastrana, And An Amateur Co-Driver Do Not Mix

Probably the toughest co-piloting job ever.

Rally driving looks pretty intimidating. In fact, it’s a toss up between which of the two kinds of racing takes more skill, rally or Formula One. Even though F1 cars reach much higher speeds, they have their sticky tires planted firmly into the pavement. Rally cars don’t have this luxury, so drivers make up for it by having co-drivers tell them what kind of turn or obstacle is coming up so that they have time to prepare. This job is little more than reading instructions off of a page, but it’s actually a lot harder than it looks.

To prove it, Engineering Explained sits shotgun to Travis Pastrana and gives it a try. The results would certainly not be pretty if this was a real race.
