Off-Road Racer RJ Anderson Turns Abandoned Warehouse into His Personal Playground

The new Polaris RZR XP Turbo EPS is a 144-horsepower beast designed for mad men. With its completely upgraded cooling system, driveline, and brakes, it’s a beast born out of the eagerness to turn dirt into pieces and vanish into the dust it leaves behind. To make this five-minute video possible, they upgraded this particular machine up to 200-horsepower and turned abandoned steel mills, old factories and train yards into a race track.

The video you’re about to see is the result of months of planning, an effort of tens of people passionate about getting the best out of each stunt. It looks exciting, spectacular, but it should be noted upfront it can also be extremely dangerous.

The video was produced by motorsports production powerhouse Mad Media, with the abandoned structures representing a perfect setting for the scenario they had in mind.

They shot it in 4K resolution that makes every jump and high-speed drift feel like you’re there. According to the fellows behind this thing, it took the building team of 15 people more than a month to work on the final vehicle, and more than double the time to make all the locations ready.

RJ Anderson is a professional off-road racer who has been doing these types of stunts since he was a 14-year-old kid. Watching him performing shows both the passion and the talent he has gathered through the years.

Shot in Youngstown, Ohio, the video shows RJ playing numerous gigs, with the biggest jump reaching a 90-foot leap over a disused train. For those who want details about the monster’s construction, you may wish to consult the features listed below:
