The Hollywood Megamercial

We started the day with parkour on a bike, and we’ll end it with the closest thing you can get to parkour in a car, Gymkhana. This is Ken Block’s 4th Gymkhana video, and it’s chock full of cameos. This has good spots, but I think #3 was way more impressive. Although the video clocks in over 9 minutes, you only need to watch from the 1:35 mark until 7:00.

Crazy car driving skills

This is Ken Block practicing a sport called gymkhana, which is sort of the Mario Kart version of rodeo barrel racing.

The build-up is way too long…the good stuff starts at about 1:10 and the crazy-ass shit starts at 3:00. The move right at three minutes in is just absolutely fantastic as is the 360 sliding thing he does through a building. (via clusterflock)
