Ken Block, the unofficial king of viral videos, continues his relentless stream of YouTube clips with a behind the scenes look at his Gymkhana 3: Part Two film.
Weeks ago Block confirmed the fourth installment of his popular Gymkhana video series in a clip announcing his busy 2011 schedule. Although it’ll be months before part four hits the web, Block has provided some behind the scenes looks and alternate angles of the previous chapter.
“While the toughest part of making the Gymkhana films is the actual driving, selecting which of the hundreds of shots make the final cut is no simple task,” said Block in a statement. “So as we have done with the previous Gymkhana video clips, we have gone back and re-created Gymkhana Three Part 2 using alternate angles. We have also created individual clips highlighting each of my favorite tricks in the video.”
Hitting up France’s l’Autodrome race track, Block faced an entire new set of obstacles and possibilities. Taking advantage of the track’s unique features, many stunts from the video take place on the steeply-banked oval, which sports inclines measuring up to 51 degrees. In addition to an Alternate Angles video, six other videos dubbed Bonus Trick Edit give a closer look at a handful of stunts. Several new camera angles provide added insight into the intricate driving abilities required to perform the stunts.
For those who simply can’t get enough of the Monster World Rally Team’s new Ford Fiesta and its drip paint scheme can purchase a hand-signed print of the car itself. While signing the prints, Block used a special paint pen, designed to produce similar drips. Limited to 100 examples, the prints will be offered via DC’s website starting March 1st.
