The Gymkhana FIVE took place in San Francisco, the perfect place thanks to its physical terrain and the fact that it can be recognized on a global scale. Because of its steep windy streets, the iconic bridges and very special neighborhoods, this was the perfect location for Gymkhana FIVE. This is actually the first time the driving was done on real streets when it comes to Ken Block. Even though the city has 7.5 million residents, there is no one on the streets at the time of the tricks, looking like its own racecourse. Exactly for this, the Financial District and the Bay Bridge were shut down and the driver managed to tackle extreme angles in different places like the Russian Hill, Twin Peaks, Potrero Hill and the San Francisco Bay, of course.
This might be the one of the most difficult and intense driving ever recorded in San Francisco. As you could see in the video, Travis Pastrana makes an appearance very hard to forget in the video. Actually this trick he did is the first one after his injury at X Games one year before. Also, in the video appear two trolleys and together with the barge and the Port of San Francisco, offer incredible character to the GYM5. In comparison with the Gymkhana 3 and the Gymkhana 4, the Gymkhana 5 is the best one by far. The way Ken Block performed on the streets of San Francisco made us think we have never seen anything like this before. The driver used the Hybrid Function Hoon Vehicle for this video like in the Gymkhana 4, even though the location is new.
The Ford Fiesta was actually designed by Block and the Monster World Rally Team to compete in RallyCross, stage rally and gymkhana. Under the hood it hides a 2.0-liter turbo charged motor capable of developing 600 horsepower and 665 lb. ft. of torque. This output enables the car to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 1.8 seconds.
