Video: Ken Block Gymkhana 8 released, not as exciting as previous vids?

Ken Block and his mischievous Ford Fiesta rally car are back for Gymkhana 8. This time the stunts and drifting took place in the exotic surroundings of Dubai.

Without meaning to spoil it for you, this instalment of the video series doesn’t seem as exciting as previous episodes. Sure, the entire exercise must have cost a fortune for Ford and other sponsors, but it just seems like the driving stunts have been toned down somewhat. It actually looks like more of a promotional exercise for Dubai, and Ford.

At the end we get a sneak peek at Block’s next car; the Ford Focus RS RX. Click play below to check it out. And feel free to tell us what you think below.
