This is Ken Block’s Gymkhana Four video, the latest to show off his incredible driving skills. And I have to say it’s probably the best driving video I have ever seen. In fact, I need to watch it all the way through again, it’s that good.
Ken Block is a professional rally driver who is now as well known for his demonstrations of controlled sliding and donuts as his actual racing career.
I first became aware of Block when he appeared on Top Gear, scaring the life out of James May as he drove him around pulling off spectacular feats of driving. Then again May gets scared quite easily.
Gymkhana Four, subtitled The Hollywood Megamercial, sees Block racing around the back-lot of Universal Studios, with spectacular special effects happening around him as he drives. Truly incredible stuff.
