I think I have told you guys this once before but I love cars. I love racing. And I love Rally! So you probably won’t be surprised by this awesome video that I am posting. When I met Ken Block he was a rally driver. It was up at Ojibwe 2009 (maybe). I was so excited because, at the time, he had a slick Subaru. And after I saw him drive, I was impressed.
Fast forward to now, he has produced 5 ‘events’ he calls Gymkhana (prononuced gym-kah-na) where one maneuvers skillfully through obstacles with crazy speeds and tactical breaking. Let’s just say, IT’S INSANE!
Gymkhana 5 doesn’t disappoint. This is what it’s all about:
Shot on the actual streets of San Francisco, California, GYM5 features a focus on fast, raw and precise driving action. Filmed over four days, director Ben Conrad and his team are back to work on their second Gymkhana production and delivered the entire city of San Francisco as Ken Block’s personal gymkhana playground. DC Shoes also provided fellow DC athlete and longtime Ken Block friend, Travis Pastrana, to make a cameo appearance on his dirtbike, and S.F. resident Jake Phelps of Thrasher Magazine fame also makes a cameo as Block hoons S.F. in his most incredible Gymkhana yet.
Enough jibber jabber, let’s watch this!
