Ken Block Tears up Dubai in Gymkhana EightMarch 2nd, 2016
Ken Block is back with Gymkhana Eight, and this time he is in Dubai tearing up the roads. The wealthy Middle Eastern nation is probably best known by car folks for having some of the coolest exotics on its streets, and for having a police force that has a slew of supercars itself.
Dubai is a very impressive place with incredible architecture, so it makes for the perfect backdrop for the video. Block ends up doing all the hooning you expect him to do and even gets in a drag race with some legit exotic cars. I always wondered how that Fiesta racer would hold up against exotics. Even with 650hp under the hood, I wonder if the race was rigged.
I thought he might crash hopping over those sand dunes early in the video, but his Ford Fiesta RX43 handles it like champ. This video is well worth the nine minutes it takes to watch.
