Ken Block Hoons Around in Laser-Guided Darkness

Gymkhana has a dark side.

As promised, we bring you Ken Block honing around a track in total darkness, save for some frickin’ lasers presumably there to stop him from killing himself and other reasonably capable drivers. Castrol organized the crazy event it dubbed the Titanium Strong Blackout trial, which saw Block in his Fiesta ST, Adrian Zaugg in a Lamborghini Aventador, Augusto Farfus in a BMW M4, and Mike Rockenfeller in a V10 Audi R8, all hooning it around a racetrack lit up by hundreds of light beams.

There doesn’t appear to be any logic to this madness, but there is a very cool ending with Block landing a pretty sweet jump. Anyone affected by strobe lights should just peruse the pictures. For the rest, enjoy the vid.
