Default Block can drive!

Just ran across this, I've never seen gymkhana before. Kinda like drifting, but better. Anyways, it's entertaining.

YouTube - Ken Block Gymkhana Practice

It's an oldie, but I never get tired of watching that one.

Another favorite, which has been posted time and again:

Damn ^ that was worth visiting this thread for - I've never seen it. Unfortunately that Stalone indy car movie tainted my experience when I saw the open wheel car on the downtown streets. And I thought I'd wiped that movie from my memory.

I like how it ends in Monte Carlo, France at the end.

Still no disclaimer saying that was shot in one contiuous take. With all the practice marks I'm not even slightly impressed if it was pieced together from multiple runs.

Agreed. At one point you see his rear-right hit a while he was drifting too close to...never see the damage on the car later.

Ah, another gem from the re-re-re-post goldmine, and a personal favorite. Claude Lelouch's short instructional film on how to cross Paris faster than the *****, entitled "C'était un rendez vous". Turn up the speakers, it's an aural orgasm.



Here is a somewhat higher quality version: http://www.veoh.com/browse/videos/ca...96454yX8nSphf# (fullscreen it for maximum awesomeness.)
