KEN BLOCK PASSES THE TORCH TO TRAVIS PASTRANA AFTER 10 AMAZING EPISODES
Did you know - according to Wikipedia - that Block is a California Native born in 1967 and his rallying career began with the Vermont Sports Car Team back in 2005?
He also competed in a whole bunch of famous races, co-founded DC shoes, has been on Top Gear and the Discovery Channel (to name a few) and is the Head Hooligan and Rally Driver with the Hoonigan Racing Division.
During those many years Block has co-created some amazing cars and trucks, while also partnering with Subaru and Ford before most recently becoming a free agent.
Thats an impressive list. But theres more...
Gymkhana Viral Sensations
Those stats are pretty impressive, but perhaps most impressive is Block's Gymkhana Series that began back in 2008 when he released his "Practice Session" which is known now as Gymkhana 1.
Since then he has created many more films with the help of a dedicated team. Each one has become its own viral sensation online and now they have racked up well over half a billion views collectively.
The Torch Gets Passed
Block now seems to be enjoying his life and recreation outside - as he always has, but interestingly, he has passed the Gymkhana Torch to Travis Pastrana. Which lands us at today's most recent video: Gymkhana 11.
You may have already seen some - or ALL of these - maybe many times. And I'm sure a good amount of you know more about both Pastrana, Block and Rally Racing than I do - truthfully I don't follow any directly, so I don't know much.
There is one thing I am sure of though: If you haven't seen these videos, you should. And if you have seen them, watch them again, because they never cease to amaze.
