To celebrate the announcement of Gymkhana 10, Ford released a few videos that showed how the sausage was made on Gymkhana Nine. Check out these extended, behind-the-scenes cuts of one of the better Gymkhanas ever made: the one with the freaky train jump.

Toyo has a new evolution of its highly-regarded Proxes R888 track tyre. Called the Proxes R888R, it's a road legal racking semi-slick with even more grip and better performance over multiple heat cycles. None of that matters, though, when Ken Block puts a set on his 1400-horsepower Hoonigan RTR V2 and attacks the Pikes Peak hillclimb.
Ken Block makes amazing gymkhana videos. But NSW Police didn't want Ken Block to make this particular gymkhana video -- the one you see right up there -- in Sydney. So the Hoonigan team went to New York instead, leaving Australia in its dust. Here's the video they made -- the video that could have featured the Sydney Harbour Bridge, the Opera House and all our most famous city's iconic landmarks.
Most researchers developing artificial intelligences are working towards a goal of making robots that can one day adapt to any situation. But researchers at MIT have instead created an AI that can learn to drift an RC car, which means that one day the terminators will drive even better than Ken Block can.
Does Ken Block ever travel anywhere in a straight line? Or is he full-time #slideways? Whatever the answer, Ford decided to lend him a prototype version of the beastly new 2016 Focus RS to do a few fancy tricks around the factory before sliding it out to the assembled media for the unveiling.
Chris Harris is a man who is familiar with insane speed, smoking tyres and exotic cars. So you'd think that getting into a car with Gymkhana legend, Ken Block, would be no big thing, right? Wrong. Block's Gymkhana Seven drops tomorrow, and a test ride with the man himself saw Chris Harris soil himself from the looks of things.
Ken Block is a wildman. We've seen him streak around San Francisco, tear about this geometrically-impossible man-made course and tear up James May's face. Last November, Ken Block in the Hoonigan Racing team car ended their season spectacularly when their car rolled in the forest. We now have that on-board video, and an explanation of what went wrong.
Ken Block is a man without fear. For Gymkhana 6, he teamed up with the people from Need For Speed: Rivals to build an insane course filled with twists, turns, containers, police on segways and in Lamborghinis. Then Ken made that course his tyre-smoked bitch. Get in here and watch this quickly before EA takes it down!
