A highly skilled and crazed racing car driver is cut loose on the streets of San Francisco and allowed to perform a lot of fun and insane driving. High quality filming.
Ken Block has officially released Gymkhana 5. This time he has unleashed his 650-horsepower Ford Fiesta on the quiet streets of San Francisco. How’s that for an impressive venue? Cleared of traffic, the hilly terrain makes for a perfect playground. The video spends plenty of time getting up close and personal with the city’s famous trolleys before moving to the Port of San Francisco. There’s also an impressive bit of hot shoeing on a barge in the bay as well. This time, Block has brought along a special friend to help him send tires to their smoky graves.
Travis Pastrana has hopped on a bike for the first time since his massive crash at the X Games a year ago, and the two proceed to craft a mechanized ballet for everyone to enjoy. That’s cool and all, but we enjoyed watching Block vault the Fiesta for some serious air time. Check out the video for yourself. It’s ten minutes of insanity.
