Video: XP1K makes Gymkhana look like a teen driving clinic


I’ve seen some crazy driving. It comes in many forms. Be it Mike Ryan in his Banks-powered Freightliner, Ken Block in his various Gymkhana films, and, well, pretty much every WRC driver ever. Still, there are some feats of driving captured on video that are quite capable of making you stop, focus, and then sit back to think about what you just witnessed once it’s over.

RJ Anderson just did that, and he did it with a Polaris RZR XP1000 UTV. A side-by-side. Well, a highly tuned and prepped side-by-side, but still. What Anderson does behind the wheel is rather amazing. I remember being impressed when Doug Siddens drove his manic RZR up Pikes Peak. I’m still impressed with his runs, actually. This, however, is something totally different.

Click past the break to watch RJ Anderson pilot his RZR through an abandoned facility. The visuals are amazing, the noise is wonderful, the driving is next-level, and it all adds up to one captivating piece of video.

    Aside from the speed, handling, durability, and talent, this is pretty much what it's like whenever I drive a small-displacement vehicle equipped with a CVT.

    I can hear Jim McKay (RIP) now, "…the thrill of victory, and the agony of defeat."
