Ken Block does some extreme driving in the amazing video Gymkhana 3, which was shot at the Autodrome de Linas-Montlhéry racetrack outside of Paris. Gymkhana is a type of precision motorsport that pushes driving skills to the limit.
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.
