STEEL-IT® Brand Coatings, made in the USA and trusted worldwide since 1974, are a premium line of anti-corrosion coatings that include epoxy coatings and innovative weldable polyurethane coatings.

In Gymkhana 2020, Travis Pastrana pilots a specially built 825 horsepower Subaru WRX STI. The vehicle itself, built around an all carbon fiber body and active aero-dynamic elements, was constructed by Vermont Sportscars just for this film as an unrestricted and totally over the top performance-oriented vehicle capable of pulling off insane stunts.
In the 9 minute 30 second video, Wheelman Pastrana rips up the streets, jumps a canal, and hoons around the township of Annapolis, Maryland, reaching speeds of up to 150 miles per hour. As an official sponsor of Gymkhana 2020, STEEL-IT is featured multiple times, including the opening & closing credits, on the Gymkhana 11 Subaru WRX STI vehicle livery, and also in the climactic stunt where Pastrana expertly sends the vehicle flying off a launch ramp at very high speed. The ramp features prominent STEEL-IT branding and is coated with STEEL-IT Polyurethane 1012 Black to resist the corrosive forces associated with the nearby Atlantic Ocean.
