How do you improve on DC Co-Founder and Rally Team Member Ken Block’s insane Gymkhana Practice and Gymkhana TWO videos? On the heels of the hilarious episode of “Rob Dyrdek’s Fantasy Factory” last night on MTV, DC has released Gymkhana 2.1, a funny new video available now online featuring longtime friends Dyrdek and Block whipping around a Gymkhana course side-by-side—Block in his high-powered Subaru Impreza WRX STI, Dyrdek in his comical and somewhat powerful miniature version of Block’s rally car.
As seen on MTV’s “Rob Dyrdek’s Fantasy Factory”, Gymkhana 2.1 takes the epic cinematography and driving from Block that you’ve come to expect from the Gymkhana videos and mixes in Dyrdek and his “mini-Gymkhana” kart. The two, who have worked together and been good friends since Dyrdek joined the DC skate team in 1995, decided to get the kart built and film the clip when Dyrdek made an appearance in the Gymkhana TWO video earlier this year. A custom mold was made to build the kart nearly identical to Block’s Subaru Impreza WRX STI (except for the head-out-the-roof part). The kart was wrapped in the same graphics as Block’s competition rally car, and a custom fireproof, FIA certified driving suit just like Block’s was even made for Dyrdek by Alpinestars.
The complete version of Gymkhana 2.1 features more of what was seen on Dyrdek’s hit MTV show. Filmed in the same high-quality, HD style as the previous installments of Block’s Gymkhana videos, Dyrdek and Block brought the filming crew to El Toro Airfield to document the whole thing. The Gymkhana 2.1 video features all the near run-overs, drifting, racing and shenanigans that occur when two unique individuals like Dyrdek and Block hit the tarmac in polar-opposite-sized whips.
