Ken Block's Gymkhana Six: Behind the Scenes Exclusive

We’ve got our very own photos from the Ultimate GRID Course

I’ve got to say, it was a tremendous honor to be on set as one of the three photographers during the filming of Need for Speed: Ken Block’s Gymkhana Six. Some of my closest friends work with Block, either at Hoonigan, Hoonigan Racing or GoPro, and overall, it’s pretty amazing to see a group as talented as this come together to create something so f**ing awesome. Here you will find exclusive behind the scenes photos along with imagery Hoonigan used in its promotion for this latest viral video.

Earlier this week, during the Las Vegas premiere party, a select few of us watched the video at an eardrum collapsing volume on a massive projector screen in a rented out floor of The Palms Hotel & Casino - it was badass. But the funny thing was that afterwards Mr. Block took the microphone and honestly confessed that each Gymkhana video royally screws him, because it’s harder and harder to top the previous video. “How do I top San Francisco?!” he laughed.

And it’s true; Gymkhana 5 was pure vehicular insanity, wrapped up in a series of epic locations with production value through the roof. For Gymkhana 6 though, Block went back to the original roots of the first videos; showing off car control, precision and just how nimble his batshit crazy 2013 Ford Fiesta ST RX43 on the sick fifteen52 wheels really is, and yes, those are turbo fans!

The concept for this video was to create the ultimate Gymkhana GRID course and it was undeniably a success. It’d be nuts to see a GRID competition on a course like this, mirrored with two drivers head-to-head. Will that happen? Who knows… Until then, though, you should thoroughly enjoy this video, filmed and assembled by the video geniuses at Logan Media.

Earlier this year, Subaru announced the WRX STI would get a 5-horsepower boost for 2019. No, it wasn’t much, but at least the STI would no longer be outgunned by the turbocharged four-cylinder Mustang. Subaru’s latest special edition STI, however, comes with a much less underwhelming boost in power. It’s called the WRX STI TC 380, and
