From Subaru News:

Starting from Alaska on april 29th, they passed through Canada, the United States, Mexico, Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaraguara, Costa Rica, Panama, Columbia, ecuador, Chile, and Peru to reach the finish line safely in Patagonia, Argentina on May 17th.

The drivers, in their Forester with the "Best of Both" worlds of a passenger car's comfort and high level of performance and an SUV's go anywhere capability completeted the nearly 24,000 kilometer journey in 18 days 1 hour and 11 minutes to easily break the previous record of 23 days 22 hours 43 minutes, setting a new record for the Guinness Book of World Records

Just thought this may intrest some of you Forester enthusiasts.

FWIW, it was a Forester S Turbo

Toerag, Subaru News is the Dealership Network's quarterly newsletter from Fuji Heavy Industries. If you bug you dealer enough( or you used to work at one ) they'll let you take a look.

Cool

That's about 34 mph average for the whole trip!! (somebody check my math)

Forester turbo? I wonder if they had trouble getting premium petrol along the way?

Seems awfully slow to me. Wish I had a few weeks to bust the record.

Then again, I wish my RS would run for long enough to complete those few weeks of driving, first off. :-/

EDIT - I take that back... it's nearly 15,000 miles and driving at 50mph average, you'd still need to drive 300 hours (12.5 days straight).
