Ken Block's new Gymkhana video - Epic!

Mention cars speeding round San Francisco and most people of my generation immediately think of Dirty Harry or Bullitt.  Huge American cars sliding round square corners, over tram lines and flying over the famous concrete steps with hubcaps flying off.

Ken Block obviously watched those films as a child.  His new Gymkhana (Five, if you're counting) features Ken in his WRC-spec Ford Fiesta rally car sliding round concrete overpasses, hurtling through closed city streets, hand-braking round moving trams and yes he does jump over the famous concrete stepped street (spectacularly).  Oh, and watch out for Travis Pastrana putting in an appearance.

Settle down, buckle up and enjoy.  This is a treat, despite the awful song over the end credits.
