You’ve all heard of Ken Block and Gymkhana.
If you haven’t, I strongly suggest you go and watch all the other videos he made first. Ken Block is well-known to petrolheads for his Gymkhana series by Ford Performance. But he also is a multi-winning rally driver with a passion for extreme sports & disciplines. A lot of you will wonder what exactly is Gymkhana. It’s not exactly drifting « per se », it’s more about the ability to control a car (or bike) through a course filled with obstacles & difficulties, while keeping speed & agility. Therefore, contrary to popular belief, drifting is a huge part of Gymkhana, but Gymkhana is not ALL about drifting.
The latest Ken Block Gymkhana 8 starts in the Dubai desert, and eventually goes in the city. You’ve got it all: the car, the sound, falcons, camels, the scenery, the desert and the modern city. You will also be able to see the Dubai police and part of their incredible fleet of police cars (SLS AMG, R8, 650s, i8, F-Type Nissan GTR and whatnot) and even better: a Veyron, F12, LFA & Aventador 50th anniversary. As far as I’m concerned, it’s probably one of my favorite Gymkhana videos ever (being in Dubai helps a LOT)! If all those details didn’t convince you to watch the video, I sincerely do NOT know what will. The video is incredibly filmed and you can only imagine the BUDGET to make it happen, it’s incredible. That is Hooniganism at its finest!
