Ken Block - behind the scenes

Ken Block's latest Gymkhana video is out - the seventh in the series - and has already amassed almost ten million views on YouTube.  (You'll find it here if you've missed it so far.)

However, I've long wanted to know more about Ken Block himself, and how (and why) he does such lunatic things with motor vehicles.  Turns out that James May of the BBC's Top Gear television series spoke to him in an extended interview at an old airfield in California, and was treated to an in-car demonstration of what he does so well.  Watch it in full-screen mode for the greatest effect.

Remind me never, ever to ride with that guy . . .
