Ken Block’s Latest Video

In Ken Block’s latest video, he does what he does so well: spins his wheels to the point of destruction and putting himself on the verge of crashing.

In fact, he does crash (don’t worry, it was only a scuff) and he does destroy his rear tyres.

Destroying the tyres, however, is no suprise. Ken Block is, without a doubt, an immensely skilled and immensely brave driver, but then again, he needs to be.

The car he uses in this round of Gymkhana, a motor sport that takes place in car parks and gives the driver inceredibly demanding obstacles, is a 2011 Ford Fiesta, but unlike a normal Fiesta, this car has a 650 bhp engine with 660 lb/ft of torque, propelling it to 60 mph in a Bugatti thrashing 1.9 seconds.

This video entitle ‘Gymkhana Three, Part Two, Ultimate Playground’, was filmed for the, first time, in France at the ‘Ultimate Playground’ l’Autodrome de Linas, Montlhéry, a very steeply banked 1.58 mile oval track just south of Paris.

Since this video’s release on the 14th September, it has already had 5.1 million views.

Sit back, relax, and watch in amazement. Well, be as relaxed as you can be when thinking that Ken is on the brink of crashing.
