This Might Be The Best Budget Gymkhana Video We’ve Ever Seen

Gymkhana

You don’t need a big budget to make a Gymkhana video – just some enviable driving skills.

Whenever a new Gymkhana video showcasing the precision driving prowess of Ken Block drops, it’s a viral online event that attracts millions of viewers. It’s not surprising though – watching Block perform preposterous powerslides and insane jumps never fails to entertain. As the series has progressed, so have the production values, resulting in more exotic locations and increasingly ambitious stunts. One man was so inspired by the series, he decided to make his own Gymkhana-style video - albeit on a limited budget.

In contrast to the tire-shredding monsters Ken Block gets to play with, this filmmaker was given permission to hoon an old Subaru Impreza around someone’s property, which was turned into a driving playground using the property owner’s heavy equipment as obstacles. It isn’t a parody, either – this is a serious attempt at a stunt video in the style of Block’s Gymkhana series.

Admittedly, the man behind the wheel, Tyler Witte, is no amateur driver, having previously participated in rally events. But considering the limitations, you can’t fault the execution here. Speaking to Speed Hunters, Witte revealed that he bought the knackered Subaru Impreza 2.5 RS from a friend, stripped it and spent eight months transforming it into a rally machine. Filming took two days, but Witte admitted he “really had no idea how difficult it would end up being” when he started the project. His efforts paid off, though: the stunt driving on display is dazzling, as Witte hurls the Impreza around obstacles with the sort of precision that would make Ken Block proud.
