Ken Block's Gymkahana Ten

Travis Pastrana wheelies in at the end on a motorcycle, but otherwise, this is 20 minutes of amazing stuff in five different Ford vehicles in five different cities. I may have to watch it again a few times. I want a truck like the one they run at the end. That one's in Texas, of course.

That was fun. I liked the use of the different locations and cars. Loved the homage to the ending of Dazed and Confused.

Drifting is sooooo boring to me. I want to like it, but after about 30 seconds my mind completely shuts down. I can't think of a worse way to get anywhere your trying to go.

Does he even 'race', or is he just a smokey spinning wheel duder?

Ken Block races the World Rallycross Championship and the World Rally Championship when his schedule allows. I believe he did at least one of event of each this year.

Well at lest he has that I guess. Does that mean Rossi just beat him for like the 7th time in a row, or does he not make it to that event? Conveniently...

I should point out, I know the dude has talent. I can't do that, and he has to be great as hell because people don't build cars like that for free. I just don't see the draw is all.

Has anyone else been watching the Ken Block documentary series on Amazon ?
Crazy good. Behind the scenes of making Gymkhana and his racing.
Some in depth personal stuff too

Ken Block was a co-founder of DC Shoes (sold off his interest) and now founder of Hoonigan. I'm pretty sure he was self funded at first.
