Ken Block & Mikko Hirvonen - DiRT3 Gymkhana Uncovered
Mikko Hirvonen in his Ford Fiesta RS WRC and Ken Block in his Monster Focus
RS WRC hooning around Battersea Power Station at the media launch for
DiRT3. The SOUND of the tyres screeching, the turbo banging, the wastegate chattering - all echo
off the iconic building. Oh and there's a girl in a bikini. Filmed,

Drift Day Ken Block Test Course

DC SHOES: GYMKHANA 2.1, BLOCK vs DYRDEK
As seen on MTVs Rob Dyrdeks Fantasy Factory, Gymkhana 2.1 takes the epic
cinematography and driving from DC Co-Founder and Rally Team Member Ken
Block that youve come to expect from the Gymkhana videos and mixes in Rob
Dyrdek in his comical and somewhat powerful miniature version of Blocks
rally car. The two, who have worked together and been good friends since
Dyrdek joined the DC skate team in 1995, decided to get the shifter car
built and film the clip when Dyrdek made an appearance in the Gymkhana TWO
video earlier this year. A custom mold was made to build the shifter car
nearly identical to Kens Subaru WRX STI (except for the head-out-the-roof
part). The team at Vermont SportsCar wrapped the shifter in the same
graphics as Blocks competition rally car, and a custom fireproof, FIA
certified driving suit just like Blocks was even made for Dyrdek. The
Gymkhana 2.1 video features all the near run-overs, drifting, racing and
shenanigans that occur when two unique individuals like Dyrdek and Block
hit the tarmac in polar-opposite-sized whips. For more photos and info on
Gymkhana 2.1, check out dcshoes.com/auto.

DirtyImpreza.com - Ken Block's Gymkhana STi
It was rally cross off season so some southern California DI members got
together to attend Team Blew and Subaru of America's "Driven By Who's
Inside Challenge" out at California Speedway. We figured we'd give this
grip stuff a shot. While we were there Ken Block was giving demos in the
new 2008 Impreza STi and he was also testing his Gymkhana car. This car is
a beast! Rumored at 500 whp it could easily drift around many of the
technical sections of the course. Sit back and enjoy this short video of
Ken ripping around the track in this beautiful machine.
