Block drifting with his 650bhp RX3 Fiesta
Ken Block revealed yesterday the 8th installment of Gymkhana which was shot in Dubai. I was there when Block was shooting the Gymkhana and I even got to meet him during the unveiling of Ford’s all-new GT supercar at the Dubai Motor Show.
Gymkhana 8 is amazing and has everything you want to see in Dubai. I loved the donuts around the fleet of super-police cars and underneath the plane, the drag race with a Veyron, Ferrari F12, Lexus LFA and Lamborghini Aventador and the tricks he pulled on Sheikh Zayed road with the huge Ford Raptor SVT (I love that truck!).
My favorite Gymkhana is still though the Los Angeles one where Block drove a monstrous 845 HP All-wheel drive 1965 Ford Mustang. Now what would be awesome is to have a Gymkhana Beirut edition. I know it’s a long shot but our roads are ideal for a Gymkhana, from the city to the mountains. If Block needs an extra special reason to come here, We can even ask the cops to drift along Block with their Chargers, how cool would that be? 😛
People around the world are going green, i think it’s time to stop polluting our cities for entertainment reasons!! and no i don’t want this in Beirut and specially not in our mountains, get me something more interesting, less polluting and less noisy…
