Gymkhana 3 Coming Next Week

19 August 2010, 20.19 | Posted in cars | 3 comments »


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

26 April 2010, 15.42 | Posted in cars | No comments »


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.

DC Gymkhana 2.1 | Block vs Dyrdek

04 September 2009, 10.24 | Posted in cars, videos | No comments »


Someone must really love this Gymkhana thing, cause it keeps going longer than the energy bunny. Next up is version 2.1. This one is pretty funny though, with Rob Dyrdek getting in on the action in his exact replica mini-Gymkhana whip and further proving that he gets paid purely to have fun. You can’t hate on that though. If you still need more, hit up DC for some behind the scenes love.
