Video: Ken Block’s Gymkhana Five in San Francisco: Ultimate Urban Playground

July 9, 2012
We all knew it was coming, and here it is – Ken Block’s latest (5th) hoontastic Gymkhana video presentation.

Up, up… and away..!

This time, the tire-shredding antics have landed him in hill-heaven: San Francisco. Other than the giggles-worthy driving on display, what impresses most is the number of road-closures granted for filming in such a busy city… well, that¬†and the 650 bhp Ford Fiesta that will rocket to 60 mph in 1.8 seconds. ¬†Enjoy..!
Gotta be honest though, I was SO hoping for a Black Dodge Charger to come out-of-nowhere and give chase… ūüėČ

The Bay Bridge: Closed for the filming of this video – incredible.

What fun this must have been to witness in your neighborhood…

Video: Ken Block’s Gymkhana 4 – Bonus Edit

May 22, 2012

Say what you rightly have to say (and think) about the Ken Block/DC Shoes ‘Gymkhana’ series of spectacular, automotive¬†hoonery… Some call it masturbational and self-congratulating to the point of being¬†absurd and some celebrate the¬†undoubtedly phenomenal¬†driving skills and OTT antics of Mr. Block (and the overall sound/visual production levels) as something we should covet and simply enjoy in this Health ‘n Safety riddled world we’ve become so (worryingly)¬†obsessed with…

Either way, there’s no denying that a newly stripped-back and ‘less-Hollywood’ re-edit of last Summer’s Gymkhana 4 video will¬†entice the interest of even the most stuffy of automotive enthusiasts… This is just¬†flat-out, automotive pornography on an out-of-control level that’s just pure fun and simply ridiculous… Enjoy…!

The RWD Campaign: Toyota GT86 Twin Drift Session

February 7, 2012

Take two Toyota GT86’s, an empty parking lot and two professional, erm… ‘drifters’ and allow them to easily (and gracefully) demonstrate the benefits of a lightweight, adjustable chassis (devoid of unnecessary computers) on skinny tires… and of how much fun a RWD car with less than 200 bhp can be..!
