Block: "I was worried for Lewis Hamilton"
We chat exclusively to Kenny B about THAT F1-Fiesta duel and the upcoming Gymkhana 7

TG: Talk to us about Gymkhana 7, Ken. We need to know Things.
KB: I've been working on it for about a year and a half. I've got quite a different idea for this one, it will be by far one of the most unique ones I've done. It's a great concept, and goes back to the simple raw pleasures of Gymkhana 1. It's gonna be really good - I can't really tell you too much about it just yet because I'd give away a lot.
It's a huge challenge, but a fun challenge. I make an amazing form of entertainment where I get to go out and burn rubber off tyres. It's really quite a special thing that I get to do, and I genuinely appreciate it, so if all the fans keep watching I get to keep making them.
TG: What's the theme behind Gymkhana 7?
KB: Well, Gymkhana 6 went back to the roots in terms of one location, and it was really the ultimate course, but here when I refer back to Gymkhana 1, I mean it was more simplistic and raw. And more about the raw power of a car and what I do with it, being wilder. It's quite a fun concept, but it's not as strict as say, when we went to Universal Studios and played around with the concept of just being at a studio. It's more wild and fun than that.
The only clue I can give you is that we're shooting this fall, and it'll probably come out in November. It's been something that's taken a lot of work to get this far.
