Ken_Blocks_Gymkhana_EightHas been some time since Ken Block has put out one of his famous Gymkhana videos.  Back on February 29, 2016 they put out a new one called Ken Block’s Gymkhana Eight: Ultimate Exotic Playground; Dubai.   Much like the other videos there is a lot of drifting.   While this one looks awesome like all there others.  This one is doesn’t pack the same punch.  Most this one he does the same two trick over and over again in different places.  However you can judge for yourself > here or below.

Posted in Just something to say, Videos with tags , , , , , , on April 25, 2014 by getbent57

FootkhanaWell Ken Block is back with a new Gymkhana video.  This new one is called Footkhana.  That is because he up against a soccer or football star Neymar Jr.  I am guess he must be famous or something.  Of all these types of videos he has done over the years these one is the weakest.  Think it is because there seems to be less of a production behind it.  All so the editing might had something to do with it.  You can check it out > here or below.

GymkhanaSixThey are back with another Gymkhana video.  This makes the sixth one and Ken Block has out done himself yet again.  These videos are all ways awesome.  A few days ago I heard they would be put this online November 11, 2013.  Well today is the 12th so you might got see it yet.  You check it out > here or below.  This guy can pull of some crazy things with his car.  They way they film these all ways keeps you interested to see what cool thing will happen next.  That being sad this was the most boring one yet.  Think it was because the location.  The other all ways were set some were cool.  Using the environment around them.  On the other had it does say right in the full title, Need For Speed: Ken Block’s Gymkhana Six – Ultimate Gymkhana Grid Course.   They did but a very awesome course.  Thinking I was expecting too much.  All it is interesting to see that Ken Block is not with EA and the Need For Speed series.  He was been with the DiRT series for a long time now.  May be he will be with both.

GymkhanaFive.jpgBack in July Ken Block’s and crew put of Gymkhana Five video.  A few days ago they put of the making of video > here and below.  Really enjoy these videos so it was nice to see how one is made.  Why they don’t go into too much detail how they do it.  But it takes a lot of people and gear.  From this video it was shot over four days.  They used all kinds of cool looking cameras.  Pretty sure they will be a new Gymkhana video out some time next year.  For now just watch the old ones.  My favourite is still Gymkhana Thee.
