Once again, Ken Block proves that he is one hell of a driver with the release of his sixth Gymkhana video, Need For Speed: Ken Block’s Gymkhana Six – Ultimate Gymkhana Grid. The course is indeed an “ultimate” grid course complete with Lamborghinis, cops riding Segways, tractors and heavy construction equipment, tight shipping containers and – of course – a spiked wrecking ball.
All of the aforementioned was conjured up by Block, who wrote and produced the video, in addition to dominating the compact course in his ultra-light Monster Ford Fiesta rally car.
Block makes whipping around his 650hp Ford Fiesta rally car look ridiculously easy, but the course seems to be a bit harder than his last Gymkhana video where he dominated most of the streets of San Francisco on a closed course. Super precise driving is necessary to pull off some of these stunts such as performing smoke-filled donuts between a couple backhoes and squeezing the Fiesta through super tight shipping containers.
Since Ken Block was an advisor for the video game Need For Speed: Rivals, it only made sense for his latest Gymkhana video to pull inspiration from the video game. Just like the rest of his Gymkhana videos full of smoke and stunts, this one has already gone viral with almost 7 million views. This video was released just four days after Block took home his first Global RallyCross event win in Las Vegas.
So, how about a little less talk and a lot more action? Check out the latest installment of Gymkhana here.
