World's craziest Subaru wins Goodwood hillclimb

"Gobstopper II" wins Festival of Speed time trial

World's craziest Subaru wins Goodwood hillclimb

We realise "world's craziest Subaru" is a bold claim, but we also dare you to prove us wrong.

Gobstopper II is the work of Roger Clark Motorsport in the UK. Roger Clark was one of Britain's finest rally drivers, and he passed on both his talent and love of cars to his sons Olly and Matt.

As the name suggests, Gobstopper II is the second wild creation from RCM, with the original GC8-based Gobstopper wowing crowds for years in a variety of events thanks to Olly's flamboyant rally-derived driving style.

However, for the company's reintroduction to the flat-out world of Time Attack racing, Olly and Matt needed a new project, and thus Gobstopper II was born.

A blog on the company's website details the build and we strongly recommend you check it out, as the the attention to detail and level of engineering poured into this car is beyond staggering - WRC bodyshell, carbon panels, integrated roll cage, paddle-shift gearbox, nitrous-assisted engine, the list is endless.

Perhaps the crew at Roger Clark Motorsport could be convinced to put Gobstopper II on a boat and take on the best Australia has to offer at Sydney Motorsport Park's World Time Attack?
