Ferrari P4/5 Competizione LOUD Sound!
I have filmed James Glickenhaus' Ferrari P4/5 Competizione in a cold and foggy day on the Franciacorta racetrack during some track tests. This racecar is a custom one-off based on the Ferrari 430 Scuderia with F430 GT2 engine, it has been built to compete in the 2011 Nurburgring 24h race. The video shows the Competizione being pushed on the track with many accelerations, fly bys and revs, so turn up the speakers!

DC SHOES: Ken Block's Gymkhana THREE, Part 2; Ultimate Playground; l'Autodrome, France
Shot just south of Paris, France in Linas at l'Autodrome de Linas --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 stunts performed were totally unknown until Ken attempted the maneuvers during filming.
