A Dangerous 7.4-mile Sprint to the Clouds – /LAUNCH CONTROL: S02E08

/DRIVE is proud to partner with Subaru’s LAUNCH CONTROL. Catch up on Season 2, as we lead up to the premiere of Season 3 on May 20!

Season 2 kicks off with a frigid bang as Team Subaru attacks the event known as Sn* Drift 2014.

Follow the team on Twitter and Instagram @srtusa:


“You only truly know how to accomplish something once you have actually done it. Turning points and opportunities are only fully recognized with hindsight.

So, for a team as experienced as Subaru Rally Team USA, reverse engineering a championship title should be straight forward. Except it never is.

Thousands of circumstances and decisions led to this moment, and no two seasons will offer the same opportunities. Experience might form the road map to a title, but it’s a road map already out of date. The 2014 championships bring new competition, new events, and new cars. A new road awaits.

This is Season Two of Launch Control.” – Subaru’s Launch Control Page

    Whoever our creator is, if there is one at all. They definitely spent some extra chromosome dust on Travis Pastrana.

    Cool film. Well produced, fun to watch. Cool event, and what an amazing road, that has to be a bucketlist road to drive on, even if not competitively. Keep up the good work.

    Why are there flat tires in almost every episode so far in this series? Can't the tires be designed to minimize chance of punctures?

    co driver sounds anoying as f

  34. Post By Maciej G.

    This is insane. And the Dashboard cam show's how close they approach the edges of the road on Slaloms and L-R 3/4 turns….

  35. Post By Krystal Owen

    Two questions:1) Is that the tranny or a charger that makes the chirping noise when listening to them from the outside while change gears?2) The co-driver, what is he actually saying? I havent been able to decipher what the codriver is actually saying yet.

    "Predates both by years…" I'm pretty sure that this event has been held so sparingly (23 times in over 100 years) that it doesn't really count. Pikes Peak has been held every single year except maybe in the 40s due to the war (92 runnings and soon to be 93 this year.)

    that was beautiful…

  38. Post By Jesse Crandle

    Is a co-pilot mandatory or something? I seriously doubt any of the veterans NEED it, they pretty much have the course memorized. Basically it's just 110 pounds of extra weight for no reason lol.

  39. Post By Mcloven5044

    what kind of gear box do they use ?

  40. Post By Cole Robbins

    "6288 ft above sea level…"Pikes Peak Hillclimb starting elevation:  9,390 ftStill looks pretty cool though, and elevation isn't everything.

  41. Post By 2JZ swap the dog

    They averaged 72.2 MPH up the hill.  Let that sink in.

    This dude could narrate grass growing and I wouldn't be able to stop watching.

  43. Post By Adrian Saldana

    Is the narrator the same from all access?

    Man, this one gave me chills. So awesome
