Good one, Lonny! He almost lost it there at the end of the downhill. I'd like to see a better view of the car at the end. It probably needed a good panel beater.

They had to widen the course in spots and remove the wing mirrors. You are right about the panel beaters.

Considering the course was modified to fit the car and how much damage studded tires did to the snow/ice surface, Subaru paid a sizable chunk of change to the owners as well I'd bet.

They weren't on an official bobsled run except for perhaps the one banked curve, and I suspect that was on the historical run they use for fun races, not the sanctioned bobsled run.  That's sacred in St Moritz.  How they even got away with that in St Moritz amazes me (makes me suspect it wasn't all filmed there).  The rest was clearly made with plows and snowcats on a makeshift run beside or part of a mountain road.
