adidas snood Ken Block carves up France’s l’Autodrome in new Gymkhana run
Rally star and DC Shoes purveyor Ken Block has delivered another piece of wild driving with his latest Gymkhana video this time carving up the high banked track at France’s Linas at l’Autodrome.
If you can dream it, Block can do it 180 degree and 360 degree turns and figure eights in a custom built, all wheel drive Ford Fiesta. There’s even a shower of sparks at the end.
Block’s Fiesta for the Gymkhana Three video is built by Olsbergs Motorsport Evolution and weighs 2,425 pounds. The Olsbergs engine can make up to 800 hp but was restricted to 650 hp for the video to give Block a fat torque band. With a six speed sequential transmission,
