    Video: Ken Box 2 is cardboard drifting greatness
    1417031880

    If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, then Ken Block must spend a lot of time blushing. At this point, the videos online that parody or take inspiration from the drifter's Gymkhana series vastly outnumber his authentic output. That's not necessarily a bad thing, though, as some of the ...

    1416248820

    Ken Block is back with his heavily modified Ford Mustang, and he's taking to the streets of sunny Los Angeles for the seventh installment of his traditionally insane, drift-tastic Gymkhana videos.

    1415236800

    Gymkhana king Ken Block has had a pretty simple car history in his trademark videos, starting out with Subaru Impreza rally cars before moving into Ford Focus racers for the past four installments. His next video, though, Gymkhana Seven, kind of goes back in time. Rather than the cutting-edge ...

    Video: Ken Block hoons his Ford F-150 RaptorTrax on the slopes
    1412786700

    Ken Block drives Fords. Hoons the heck out of 'em, actually. Mostly Fiestas, but also the occasional Focus or Mustang. But earlier this year, the Gymkhana guru revealed his baddest Ford yet: an F-150 SVT Raptor on tracks. And true to form, here he is putting it to the test in the latest video ...

    Video: Ken Block walks you through his new 'Hoonigan Racing' HQ
    1403654400

    Ken Block seems like one hell of a nice guy. I ran into him at CES this past January, and he dropped the video games he was playing to chat with me for a while. His crew also recently gave our Steve Ewing a tour of the offices you're about to see on this video. Good guy to know. As it turns out, ...

    Video: Ken Block and friends race light in silly-beautiful Castrol commercial
    1401295500

    How does one make fast, loud, drifting cars better? Well, you can add more fast, loud, drifting cars or you can add lasers. Either or, really. In this case, Castrol did the right thing and added both, creating a highly stylized commercial for its Edge Titanium motor oil starring South African ...

    Video: Footkhana pits Ken Block against Neymar Jr.
    1398286800

    Whether you're going for speed or for show, professional driving is as much about working the pedals as it about man-handling the wheel and shifter. And nobody does it quite like Ken Block. But is his fancy footwork up to par with that of an international soccer star like Neymar? That's what ...

    Video: Watch Ken Block's scary Rally America crash from inside the cockpit
    1392855480

    Ken Block became famous for his series of Gymkhana videos, but he's a real racer in his own right. Block has competed many rounds in the FIA World Rally Championship and also rallied in the 2013 Rally America series. He nearly won that latter title last year – if not for a massive crash in ...

    Video: Ken Block's latest Gymkhana video is more of the same awesomeness
    1391043600

    GoPro cameras are quite popular in a number of arenas, thanks to their general ease of use. Get the right mount, figure out where you want the camera, position it, hit a button and do whatever awesome thing you want captured on video. What happens when you have an overabundance of GoPros, ...

    Video: Watch this 1/8-scale R/C tribute to Ken Block's Gymkhana 6
    1388424600

    This radio-controlled tribute to Ken Block's Gymkahana 6 is half the length but perhaps twice as hard.

    Video: Ken Block is at it again in Gymkhana 6
    1384191900

    If there's one thing we'll say about Ken Block and his latest installment in the Gymkhana family, it's that it's far more structured than previous videos, but that doesn't mean it skimps on the entertainment. Block is on a purpose-built course which was touted as "The... Ultimate... Gymkhana... ...
