Ken Block Released Gymkhana 3 Part 2

Ken Block is constantly updating the definiton of the word "Gymkhana". The owner of DC Shoes and rally star has just released the second part of his Gymkhana THREE video. During the opening part of the video, we are offered his latest definition of the sport.

Here is Ken’s defining it: “An automotive sports that takes place in a parking lot, an abandoned airport, an international shipping port or epic 86 year-old European track that requires drivers to skillfully maneuver their cars around a series of cones, slaloms, turns, figure eights and possibly a 51-degree bank using extreme acceleration, braking and drifting. Similar to “Autocross”, Gymkhana courses are often complex, and memorizing the course is a significant part of this type of motorsport.

Ken’s latest adventure takes him south of Paris, France at l’Autodrome de Linas. This is a 1.58 mile oval track that was built in 1924 and comes with steep banks (up to 51 degrees).

You can sit back and enjoy the 7:42 minutes of Ken Block Fiesta madness.

Shot just south of Paris, France in Linas at l'Autodrome de Linas-Montlhery, this 1.58 mile oval track, built in 1924, features banks as steep as 51 degrees, which is more than double the standard incline of most NASCAR ovals. Chosen by Ken for this specific reason, the ramp-like banking proved to be a unique and exciting challenge. The driving physics for the stunts performed were totally unknown until Ken attempted the maneuvers during filming,” stated the Youtube description of the video.

We’ll remind you that Ford is currently considering building a Fiesta Ken Block edition. We’re waiting...
