Ken Block – Racing Advisor

Ken Block has joined the Need for Speed team as our Racing Advisor, helping us amp up the adrenaline and excitement of racing.

Ken is a professional rally driver famously known for his viral Gymkhana videos which have 250 million plus combined views on YouTube. His mad skills and knowledge combined with our love of driving fast can surely lead to only one thing: action racing games of epic proportions. Need for Speed is sponsoring Block and his Ford Fiesta ST 2013 racing car and will work with him on the release of Gymkhana SIX, the next installment of the award-winning, record-breaking viral video series, via our Need for Speed channel. This is the beginning of a beautiful relationship.

Need for Speed and Ken Block present:  Gymkhana SIX:  The Ultimate Gymkhana Grid Course.

Need For Speed's Racing Advisor Ken Block set out to create the ultimate grid, the most visually compelling compact Gymkhana race course ever built. This means all-new obstacles that help raise the level of difficulty for Ken. Things like moving police Lamborghini Aventadors from NFS Rivals, traveling wrecking balls on cranes, narrow doorways cut into the sides of shipping containers to allow complete slides through, and not just one, but two Segway Redview County cops.

You can almost smell the burn of the rubber as he tears up this incredible course. So sit back and enjoy the ride.
