The helmet of Ken Block, the professional rally driver behind the Gymkhana series, was stolen out of his trailer last week in Las Vegas. The reward for a safe return? A free ride with Mr. Block himself.
Last year's Gymkhana 3 freestyle drifting antics were watched by 35 million kiddies on YouTube. Today he tries to top that last performance by tearing up the Universal Studios Backlot. It's got Block crashing through a building, a gorilla on a Segway, Epic Meal Time, construction equipment, explosions, Sasquatch,…
Look who Ken Block's got doing promos for the upcoming Gymkhana IV (no, that's not a number 4, it's because Ken's GONNA NEED an IV after all the EPIC SHIT he's gonna do in GYMKHANA 4!). It's the creative gluttons of Epic Mealtime. Bacon!
We've seen Bill Caswell's side of Ken Block's return to the Goodwood Festival of Speed, but here's the reel from the Gymkhana master, showing how even polite British society enjoys a thorough spot of hooning.
I've wanted to be a World Rally Championship driver ever since I saw Prodrive running BMW E30 M3's in the late 1980s. And for a brief moment I was one of those beloved athletes, cheered by fans and professional racers alike. Sadly, it was just a trick.
Ken Block shared this pic of his next gymkhana project, adding "Who says the word 'hybrid' has to mean boring?" We're just waiting for someone to violently toss one around an abandoned industrial site, that's all. Hat tip to Crossdrilled!
Ken Block apparently made the most of his Gymkhana 3 shoot at France's l'Autodrome de Linas, shooting enough extra footage for a Choose Your Own Hoonage Adventure. Will Ken do a wall tap, or 360s in the rain? You decide.
I wish most mundane announcements could be presented to techno videos with Swedish dancing girls and a WRC Ford Fiesta in the background, like Ken Block did with his WRC schedule. School closings, dental appointments, jury notices — all could use the occasional visual gymkhana.
Blendtec's "Will it Blend" is the biggest name in viral YouTube videos that's never found a corporate sponsor it couldn't pulverize. Now they've teamed up with another YouTube viral sensation — Ken Block. Will his new Fiesta RC car blend?
Tanner Foust told us earlier this year he taught Ken Block how to Gymkhana. This weekend he showed Block he's still the master, beating Block at his own 2010 Gymkhana Grid Invitational. Say Tanner's name, bitch!
The DC Shoes/Monster World Rally Team high command stopped playing DiRT 2 long enough to confirm that the mysterious Craigslist post does indicate Gymkhana 3: Part 2 will debut next Tuesday and feature wall-to-wall, rubber vaporizing action. Their response below.
