THE MOST amazing display of driving I've ever seen. And the car's not too shabby either! :D

Good thing they had all the streets blocked off. If he does this very often, he must have a large tire bill!:D:D

That my friend is Ken Block. Is a rally car driver and the owner CEO of DC shoes. Those videos are called Gymkarna or something like that. He has done 5 or 6 of them and they are all available in YouTube. And they are very well done. They block off public toads when necessary and yes. I'm sure he has a serious tire bill. The car isn't cheap either. A full blow WRC cup car is big bucks.

Gymkhana - vintage roots! :cool:


The Lotus/Caterham Super 7 (and clones) are still made today and are great fun to drive - the power-to-weight ratio is amazing. A totally different beast that the AWD mustang!

If you like Ken's vids (how could one not!) he has a bunch on You Tube.

The production values are great as well - watch it again and add up the boom shots, helicopters etc. Oh - and to get permits to close how many sq miles of city streets. The added resources and great editing are nice tools but the driver/car/driving - that HAS to be there, can't make that up in post production!!!! :eek:

The car is in the current issue of Hot Rod. I've heard of him and have seen a couple of the previous Gymkhana productions. Just awesome!

That guy in that car has a chance of getting away the PD. Wheelman advertising. ;)

Can you imagine how much different the Dukes of Hazard or Knight Rider would have been if he was cast instead of the Hoff or Schneider/Wopat?

I sent this video off to our son.
I just got a reply from him:

"I Have a funny feeling that's exactly what happens when Mom finds out that there's a fabric sale going on."
