Gymkhana THREE, Part 2 Ultimate Playground: Video
Ken Block has released the eagerly awaited Gymkhana three, part 2 video titled Ultimate Playground. This action-packed video focuses on the acclaimed raw driving style seen in the original Gymkhana Practice. DC Co-Founder and World Rally Championship driver, Ken Block scoured the globe to find the “Ultimate Playground,” an amazing location that allowed Ken to take Gymkhana to a new, groundbreaking level in his Ford Fiesta.
Shot just south of Paris, France in Linas at l’Autodrome de Linas –Montlhéry, this 1.58 mile oval track, built in 1924, features banks as steep as 51 degrees, which is more than double the standard incline of most NASCAR ovals. Chosen by Ken for this specific reason, the ramp-like banking proved to be a unique and exciting challenge. The driving physics for the stunts performed were totally unknown until Ken attempted the maneuvers during filming.
