Ken Block Gymkhana Nine Large

Yes, we agree that Gymkhana Eight was much better that was done in Dubai, but Gymkhana Nine isn't that bad. For the uninitiated, Gymkhana is a sport involving a really fast car, mad scientists who build it and a driver who never cracks under pressure while power sliding the heavily tuned car through tight corners and spots. That's out of the way then. Now, the Gymkhana Nine is something Hoonigan and World Rallycross champion, Ken Block's fans have been eagerly waiting for. So, the track is a raw industrial playground in Buffalo, New York where one can witness Block's 2016 Ford Focus RS RX in action. Pretty obvious that it has been tuned to churn out some mad power and torque figures – 600hp and 895Nm to be precise. Got goosebumps yet?

So, while a number of you would be thinking why New York, instead of Sydney, where the new game, Forza Horizon 3's environment is set and which also happens to be one of the prime partners with Hoonigan? It is because of a bitter-sweet conversation and disagreement with the local authorities on locations to be used in Sydney, according to a report by Jalopnik. Is the video, drool worthy? Heck, yes!
