NEED FOR SPEED: KEN BLOCK'S GYMKHANA SIX -- ULTIMATE GYMKHANA GRID COURSE
Need for Speed and Ken Block present: Gymkhana SIX: The Ultimate
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.
