Ken_Blocks_Climbkhana_Pikes_PeakBack near the end of August (2017) Ken Block and crew put on a new video.  With a twist to their famous Gymkhana ones.  They called it Terrakhana. They used his rally car to pull of the crazy stunts in a desert.  If you missed that you can see it > here.  Well they are back with a different one again.  This time he used a beefed up version of all wheel drive 1965 Mustang.  Which was featured in Gymkhana Seven.  Which you can see > here.  The new video has him doing his thing while racing up Pikes Peak.  If you never heard of Pikes Peak’s.  It is a world famous hill climb event.  You can see the video > here or below.

PikesPeak This coming Sunday (August 12, 2012) will be the running of the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb.  It is being held later this year because of a bad wild fire.  Another thing is this year will mark the first time that the whole course will be paved.  Have all ways found this racing interesting ever since I seen clips of it on TV when I was young.  It is once of the coolest racing going on.  Just take a look at the video (below) of how fast, crazy and scary it is.  One my favourite things to do when I played the video game DiRT 2 was to race up the Pikes Peak course.  Not to sure how accurate it is but is sure is fun.
