Ken Block’s “Gymkhana 8” will cure your adrenaline need

By ,

Drift master Ken Block recently launched his Gymkhana 8 video, shot on location in the United Arab Emirates. From sand-covered roads in the middle of the desert all the way to downtown Dubai and an airport strip, Block never ceases to amaze.

The clip was posted on February 29th and has been viewed more than six million times so far. Gymkhana 7, released in November 2014 and featuring Block in Los Angeles, has generated over 33 million views to this day. 

Using a 650-horsepower Ford Fiesta RX 43 that can sprint from 0-60 mph (96 km/h) in just 1.8 second (!), Ken Block has a heck of a good time doing what he does best. At the end of the video, he even reveals the car he will be driving in Gymkhana 9: a Ford Focus RS RX.
