Gymkhana 5: The Video

Look, if you have ten minutes to spare, watch this video. It’s probably the best driving video you’ve ever seen. I mean it.

The scoop: Ken Block pilots his 650 HP Ford Fiesta rallycar around the streets of San Francisco. What makes this different from other Gymkhana videos are the jumps: Block gets airborne several times, including once where he hits his jump sideways and basically pulls an air-drift around a corner. Crazy stuff. The only time power meets precision like this is in F1 racing. I can’t think of anything else that comes close.

Oh, what is Gymkhana? In a nutshell, automotive gymnastics. Here’s the Wikipedia page with more info if you’re interested.

Anyway, I pretty much want to be Ken Block when I grow up.

This is one of the top trending videos in the world right now, being viewed over 5.1 million times in 24 hours. And your eyeballs to the count.
