The Art of Gymkhana

Posted on September 16, 2010 Under Life

Pardon my French, but this Gymkhana video is fucking unbelievable.  Maybe the most talented driver I’ve ever seen, ever? Ever ever?  Thanks mom.

Shot just south of Paris, France in Linas at l’Autodrome de Linas –Montlhéry, this 1.58 mile oval track, built in 1924, features banks as steep as 51 degrees, which is more than double the standard incline of most NASCAR ovals. Chosen by Ken for this specific reason, the ramp-like banking proved to be a unique and exciting challenge. The driving physics for the stunts performed were totally unknown until Ken attempted the maneuvers during filming.
