This should be old news for some of you, but for those that haven’t already seen these videos, you are in for a hell of a treat. I’ll quickly explain what Gymkhana is, then I’ll let you take a look.
Gymkhana is basically a form of autocross that involves incredibly complex courses that often need to be memorized in order to be dominated. The driver has to know the course inside out, turn by turn in order to come out with the best time. So Ken Block, who is part owner of DC Shoes as well as part of Subaru’s Rally Team USA, has made these videos just to rub it in our face how awesome his life is. He gets to drive a firebreathing rally-spec Subaru Impreza STI (although IT IS the hatchback version..yuck), and let me be the first to tell you, he drives this car like a hero. You know what, instead of telling you, I’ll just show you. The first one is a warmup, and the second one is my favourite video on Youtube. The final one is one part funny, one part awesome. You ABSOLUTELY HAVE TO WATCH THIS IN HD…NO EXCUSES. (the camera they are using in the second/third video is phenomenal). Enjoy.
