Battistinis, Ken Block's Gymkhana THREE, Part 2; Ultimate Playground; l'Autodrome, France . .
Ever since we first wore a pair of DC trainers, (or sneakers for all those street cred people out there) we have loved everything that has came out of the DC camp. When the owner of DC Ken Block turned to a new challenge we knew it sure would be an eventful one and would make it as action packed as possible. With that the case, watch this:
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.
