Ken Block Gymkhana World Tour 2011 Video
Ken Block took his Gymkhana antics round the world in 2011, and we have a six minute video of highlights.
If you have petrol running through your veins, you’ve got to love the antics of super-hooning Ken Block. And if you do, you’ve had a few chances to catch Ken and his Gymkhana antics this year as the good Mr Block took his hooning circus on a world tour.
Perhaps ‘World Tour’ is a bit of a grandiose claim for a show that only turned up in three places - Los Angeles, Vienna and Melbourne – but there were other outings for Ken and his cars too.
Ken Block has becoming a bit of a Goodwood feature in recent years, and this summer saw Ken back at Goodwood for the Festival of Speed to defend his hooning trophy from 2010 – which he of course did very well.
Ken brought a pair of cars to Goodwood in 2011, the Gymkhana III Fiesta for the tarmac and the Fiesta RS WRC for running round the dirt roads. Although he did manage to chew up Lord March’s grass with the Gymkhana Fiesta too. He even managed to fit in a few passengers for rides round Goodwood.
But this video – all six minutes of it – is highlights from Ken’s world tour to LA, Vienna and Melbourne and is, as you would expect, six minutes of madness interspersed with pretty girls, excited fans and a Slade soundtrack. What more could you want?
As you would expect, the Gymkhana World Tour highlights video isn’t just an altruistic freebie from Ken Block, it’s also a plug for an extended Gymkhana world tour in 2012, which will grow to hit five new cities round the world with hooning madness.
But it’s worth the watch.
