VIDEO: Ken Block’s Gymkhana 5
- 10th July 2012, 8:56am
His latest "hoon sequence" launched on YouTube overnight, and it really is something else.
Block was quick to point out to us that the Gymkhana videos were a long way from being filmed in 'one take'. He said that his aim was to highlight the best of the driving from all the sequences filmed.
His latest version, utilising the streets of San Francisco, certainly does that.
Some of the shots in the video are simply amazing, including a massive jump through suburbia, and turning a 90 degree corner while in the air!
There'll be many of you who may say that what Block achieves isn't that special. That many people with that much money, that much horsepower and the keys to San Francisco could achieve something similar.
That may be true, but the fact is that Block has done it, and we haven't.
Ken Block has come a long way in the last few years, and is now a respected driver in the World Rally Championship, not only because of his Gymkhana videos, but because of his skill on the stages.
The American is the WRC's biggest asset at the moment, and productions like Gymkhana 5 will do the sport absolutely no harm whatsoever.
Ken Block has done it again. Enjoy.
