Ken Block and “Gymkhana”

For those of you that are not familiar with the term, Gymkhana is an automotive sport that takes place in a parking lot, an abandoned airport, shipping port or epic 86 year old European track that requires drivers to skillfully maneuver their cars around a series of cones, slaloms, turns, bends, figure 8s and possibly a 51 degree bank using extreme acceleration braking and drifting. Similar to autocross Gymkhana courses are often complex so memorizing the course is a significant part of this type of motorsport. In an effort to take the Gymkhana concept to a new level Ken Block searched the world over to find the ultimate playground.

Ken Block (born in California) is a professional rally driver with the Monster World Rally Team. Block is also one of the co-founders and recently appointed Chief Brand Officer of DC Shoes.
