Rallycross driver and Gymkhana legend, Ken Block is at it again. Today on Instagram he teased the ninth instalment of the Gymkhana that started a decade ago.
The first ever Gymkhana video was named "Gymkhana Testing and Practice," and was published on Ken Block's own website. The video soon went viral.
Soon, the Automakers noticed the publicity the Gymkhana drew, and their sponsorship allowed Block to quit his full-time job (marketing executive at DC Shoes), and pursue his racing career. Block later rolled out seven other videos, each receiving millions of views. Now it's time for a ninth.
Block's Instagram post shows a short video, teasing the full-length video as well as the text from Ken Block himself:

"Gymkhana NINE: danger, raw action and the first time the Ford Focus RS RX has ever been driven outside a racetrack. AWESOME. Launching next Tuesday, September 13th!#GymkhanaNINE."
As Block mentioned in the description, the Gymkhana 9 will feature the Ford Focus RS RX Rallycross car. Rumours suggests that the location will most likely be New York.
"Gymkana Eight" was shot entirely in Dubai. It was released in March, so Block is wasting no time making another one.
