Ten Places Where Ken Block Should Film Gymkhana 8

Alright Kenneth H. Blockenspiel, you've hooned LA and that was great, but now you've gotta start plotting your next move. Here are ten places we think you should film Gymkhana 8.

10.) Vatican City


Pope Francis has proven to be a really cool guy, so filming in Vatican City shouldn't be too difficult. Who knows? Maybe the Pope will let Ken drive his sweet Renault 4!

9.) Ordos, China

This city in Inner Mongolia is the largest ghost city in the world, with only 2% of its beautiful buildings ever filled and the rest being mostly abandoned. Plus, there's already a race track there so it's an ideal spot.

8.) Monaco


Just picture it: Block drifting the Hoonicorn through the tiny GP circuit ruining the day for all the wealthy people out on their yachts doing yacht things. The thought of it just warms your heart, doesn't it?

7.) New York City


Doing donuts around Randy's Donuts in LA was cool, but do you know what would be cooler? Doing donuts around Columbus Circle, charging up Central Park West, then drifting through Central Park. That'd be rad.

6.) Chernobyl


Any ghost town would make a great setting for a Gymkhana film, so why not shoot in the ultimate ghost town? There would be tons of cool/creepy things to drift around and it's been nearly 30 years since the disaster. It's probably safe at this point. Probably.

5.) A Live Volcano


I don't know how this would be possible, but if anyone could do it Sir. Blockenhammer could. Maybe, he could use his insane RaptorTRAX to do the job. I'm sure this is well within the realm of possibility.

4.) Pyongyang


Oh Ken, you think you're so cool getting permits to shut down LA, well why don't you try Pyongyang? There's no lack of wide open roads and beautiful sights for all your Gymkhana making needs!

3.) Paris


Why should Gymkhana 8 be in Paris, besides the all the beautiful sights? Reader Throttlehappy355 put it best:

"You know who likes smoking more than Ken Block? The French."

Need I say any more?

2.) Aircraft Carrier


No, Ken wouldn't have a ton of room for huge drifts on an aircraft carrier but who cares? He'd be drifting on a goddamn aircraft carrier out at sea!

1.) A Mall


Ken, please turn the Hoonicorn into the Bluesmobile and do a Blues Brothers tribute Gymkhana. We all know you can do it, so what's stopping you? Do it. You know you want to. The fate of our great nation rests in your hands, Ken.
