Block out your weekend

Ken Block gets ready to turn tricks at Silverstone

You remember Ken Block? That bloke who’s spent more time driving sideways in his Subaru than most of us have in a straight line? And who had a good crack at turning James May’s hair grey in the latest telly series?
 
Of course you do, so you might be interested to know that he’ll be recreating some of his gymkhana stunts at the Trax festival this coming weekend at Silverstone.
 
He’ll be doing ten sessions during the day, and – if the organisers can clear it with those high-vis-wearing health and safety bods - Block is planning a spectacular 70ft jump.
 
If you fancy going along, head on over to the Trax website where you can buy tickets and read more on what The Block is up to.
 
In the meantime, remind yourself of his genius with our photo gallery of his exploits at the X-Games, or his second gymkhana video...

Now share it...
