Block Makes Frisco his Personal Playground in Gymkhana Five

Check out the fast, precise driving action of Ken Block as he hoons around the streets of San Francisco.
The fifth installment of the most popular stunt-driving video series ever made has arrived, and as anticipated, Gymkhana Five raises the bar. Gymkhana Five once again showcases Ken Block's precise driving skills, this time on the streets of San Francisco and with a cameo by Travis Pastrana. Filmed over the course of four days, the beautifully produced video short explores the Bay Area in a manner not seen Steve McQueen took chase in a green Mustang.
"San Francisco was absolutely amazing for Gymkhana," said Block. "It's such a unique location for this kind of driving and allowed me to do some things that I never thought I'd ever be able to incorporate into one of my Gymkhana videos - like jumping a table top or doing a jump drift!"

"I'm stoked with how this project turned out and I'm truly a lucky bastard to have been able to do the things I was able to do on the streets of San Francisco. To all of the residents and people who allowed us to make this happen, thank you!" Ken Block might not be the best, but he undoubtedly is the most famous drifter in the world and knows what it takes to shoot a first class action video. Keep 'em coming, Ken.
