Gymkhana 9 Takes Block and His Beast to an Industrial Playground
I think most of us know Ken Block much more for his epic Gymkhana videos than for his racing career. Block takes his Ford through a very cool industrial playground in his latest action video, Gymkhana 9. Block gets up to plenty of high-speed antics in his latest ride, the Ford Focus RS RX, and melts down lots of rubber in an industrial area of Buffalo, NY.
It always seems like Block is about to lose control, but he’s actually just pushing the envelope in ways that most other drivers could never do. I wonder if he ever has torn up the car and needed to reshoot with a backup ride. He certainly goes through some tires and brakes.
Block is a heck of a driver and this video is worth a watch to start out your day. Each time I see one of these videos all I can think is how much I’d like to drive the car.
