Ken Block and Vaughn Gittin Jr. Insane Octane Academy Drifting at SEMA Show 2013
Everyone knows these guys have the greatest job in the world, and they
didn't disappoint during their demonstrations on day one of the the 2013
SEMA Show. Ken Block, famous for his Gymkhana video series, blasts around
the course in his turbocharged Ford
Focus rally car. The all wheel drive Focus smokes the tires the entire run,
drifting around every corner.
Professional drifter, Vaughn Gittin Jr. wasn't far behind in his Monster
Energy Ford Mustang, which
screamed at the top of its lungs for the entire run. These guys tore up the
track, and left very little rubber on the tires on this last run of the
day, smoking up the entire Silver lot in the process. The guys finished the
run with Gittin performing a crazy smoky burnout, with Block performing
insane drifting donuts around him.
The Octane Academy powered by Ford is Ken Block, Brian Deegan, Vaughn
Gittin Jr, and Tanner Foust.

--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

Gymkhana Grid Course. Learn more at: http://bit.ly/GYM-SIX
Need For Speed's Racing Advisor Ken Block built the ultimate Gymkhana GRID
course -- a real-life playground to showcase the sheer speed, fun and
exhilarating action of driving. This means all-new obstacles that help
raise the difficulty for Block to master in his Ford Fiesta ST RX43 2013
racecar, including maneuvering around a moving wrecking ball and sliding
through narrow opening cut into the sides of shipping containers. Block
also added videogame elements from Need for Speed Rivals. Watch as he
executes multiple jumps, drifts around Lamborghini Aventadors and evades
the videogame-themed Redview County cops on Segways in his own unique
style. You can almost smell the burn of the rubber as he tears up this
incredible course. So sit back and enjoy the ride.
