Last week Radcollector had the chance to stop by the Toyota Speedway in Irwindale, California for the Ken Block Invitational, Block’s namesake Gymkhana/Drifting racing event. Our homies from DC Shoes set up a ride along for editor Brad Clarke who strapped in for a practice run with none other then Ken Block himself. Check out some serious tire burning and get a look at Ken’s raddest possession in the edit above.

AS DunkDMC  0880 Nike 6.0 DeLorean Dunks
On to more rad as hell shit, Nike 6.0 has come up with what is by far their sickest pair of kicks yet – a Dunk tribute to the greatest car of all time, the DeLorean DMC-12. From eyestays meant to emulate the DMC’s gullwing doors to a stamp reminiscent of the Belfast factory the cars were made, to an outsole in the same colors of the Delorean’s taillights, these are nothing short of incredible. No word on whether a flux capacitor version is in the works as of press time. More looks at the shoes as well as the car after the jump.

Here is a strange yet dope edit featuring Morgan Wade entitled “Daisy.” Although there isn’t any riding in this video, the Texas Camaro and girl with gun shots more than make up for it. Via VitalBMX.

Gymkhana 3 Coming Next Week

a gym 540x417 Gymkhana 3 Coming Next Week
For reasons not entirely clear, DC honcho Ken Block has made himself into an international internet phenomenon with Gymkhana, the sport he invented and is the sole practitioner of. That’s cool with us though, it is pretty rad to watch him whip the shit out of a compact car as some big budget camerawork makes it look even gnarlier. What we’re not sure of is the message being sent with these “Obama Can’t Gymkhana” stickers that are being circulated at redneck speed freak events. Gymkhana 3 drops next Tuesday.

Ken Block x Ford Fiesta | Gymkhana 3 Launch Event

IMG 6455 Ken Block x Ford Fiesta | Gymkhana 3 Launch Event
Last week Ford invited us to San Francisco to view Ken Block’s Ford Fiesta Gymkhana 3 car and to test drive the Ford Fiesta. The event started with a 100 mile rally through wine country’s winding roads, during which we pushed the hell out of the Fiesta and it passed the test. Next was the reveal party sponsored by Ford, DC Shoes, and Monster, where Ken Block unveiled his new ride. The car looks official and even though we didn’t get to take a spin with Ken, our boy “Playboy Ricky Dorigo” aka Renee Renee shared his ride-along story and taught us about American steel. We have to say, we were a bit surprised when Block made the move from Suburu to Ford but Ford Fiesta definitely passes the rad test. Check out Brad Clarke’s pics of the event after the jump.
