If you’re into cars and racing and motorized mayhem in general, you’ve likely heard of Ken Block before.
That there is the first gymkhana video he put out in what’s become a massive series. The latest one is down toward the bottom of this post. For those of you who may be unfamiliar with gymkhana, this is what it’s all about, as defined in the above video:
When that video went viral, it paved the way for more and more.
That there is the second one. As you can see, it became more about advertising in that one… That trend continued, though it doesn’t really take away from the entertainment value of watching this Hoonigan throw the car around like a toy:
There’s plenty more out there too, like the time he let loose on the streets of San Francisco:
And there’s a few more I’ve left out – if you want to find them, it’s easy enough to do. Just go to YouTube and search “Ken Block Gymkhana.”
I will, however, share with you the latest one, where he finally takes that Ford Fiesta off road. The result is pretty cool to watch. While some argue the dust takes away from it, I think it adds a cool visual effect to the video. Plus, I can’t imagine remembering where I’m going in such a vast expanse of desert.
Now don’t get me wrong – I love working in radio… But if I could figure out how to get paid (in something other than traffic tickets) for driving quickly and dangerously like my namesake does, I’d be ALL OVER that.
