…Ken Block gives Gymkhana the Hot For Words treatment?

Just one year ago, Ken Block debuted what is still one of the most amazing pieces of automotive art ever created: Gymkhana Practice.

To celebrate the one-year anniversary of the video, DC Shoes teamed up with YouTube sensation Marina from Hot For Words to explain Gymkhana, and while it lacks the tire smoke of the first video, it does make up for it with gratuitous eye candy:

You’ve already seen Ken Block do his thing a few times with Gymkhana 1 and Gymkhana 2, but now he’s teamed up with Rob Dyrdek from the Fantasy Factory to bring you Gymkhana 2.1, and it’s filled with the same great antics, just in a little less car:

…Ken Block is a gymkhana mad man?

We’ve been teased, taunted and tormented, but at long last, the wait has finally paid off and the new Ken Block Gymkhana video is live and ready for viewing:

Not one to disappoint, this video includes plenty of stunts, danger and destruction, and I caught myself literally staring at the screen with my mouth open in awe at some of the moves that he manages to pull off.

Sure, it takes a bit of a budget and quite the car to pull it off, but if there is anyone out there that can start to compete with Ken in this new sport called Gymkhana, I don’t think the automotive world will know what hit it.

…Crawford Performance knows how to tune a Subaru?

How can you prepare a car for the types of punishment that a driver like Ken Block can dish out while performing Gymkhana 2?

The short answer is that you can’t, but the long answer is that you give it to the guys at Crawford Performance and let them trick, tune and test the car over the course of 43 days and 800+ man hours to build a certified, track ready, punishment seeking Subaru that will do just about anything that you ask it to.

…It’s Website Wednesday: Gymkhana?


When Ken Block’s Gymkhana video debuted, it took the blogging world by storm, and now he’s dedicated an entire site to the Gymkhana Project, which hopefully means there’s more on the way.

For now, the site includes a bit of merchandise, the history behind the project, a gallery, downloads, and a bonus cut of the video, though hopefully more is on the way, so keep an eye out for future updates.
