VIDEO: Ken Block’s Gymkhana 9
Global action star Ken Block has released his latest tyre-shredding creation, Gymkhana 9, filmed in an industrial location in Buffalo, New York.
Block displays his latest stunt effort behind the wheel of a new 600bhp (447kW) rallycross-bred Ford Focus RS.
What is Buffalo’s gain was Sydney’s loss as the production team were originally scoping out Australia’s harbour city for the latest instalment of his hugely popular action show.
However Sydney’s authorities would not allow the necessary passes required for Block to film in the CBD and the Harbour Bridge.
He was offered Cockatoo Island in the harbour as an alternative however Block declined, claiming it did not allow him the necessary environment to produce a complete show.
