Ken Block has performed many an awe-inspiring stunt in his Gymkhana videos, but like any other showman, he needs to keep the act fresh. It seems, though, he’s running out of ideas and could use a few from you.
You of course recall Block’s viral Gymkhana Practice, Gymkhana 2 and Gymkhana 2.1 videos, in which he transforms the tires of his various Subaru WRX STIs into smoke and black stripes on the pavement. After sliding around a closed Marine Air Base, the docks at the Port of Los Angeles, and another airport with Top Gear, Block has run out of ideas. He’s done big slides around countless obstacles and demonstrated impressive car control while spinning all four tires, but he needs a fresh challenge.
That’s where you come in. Block has himself a brand-new Ford Fiesta he intends to burn the rubber off of just like his old Subarus, but he’s not sure how to go about it this time. So, he wants you and every other Gymkhana fan out there to go to DC Shoes’ website and tell him where Gymkhana 3 should be staged and what kinds of tricks he should do. Not only could you win bragging rights if your idea is chosen, but a grand prize winner will win a one-day trip to the shoot of Gymkhana 3 and a ride in the car with Block. Second and third-place winners will receive prizes including autographed posters and team clothing.
But don’t take our word for it. Watch Block’s video HERE to get the details along with a few clips of the new Fiesta doing what Block does best — driving sideways. Then, go to DC Shoes’ website and submit your ideas.
