A new video featuring WRC Rally driver and DiRT 3 consultant Ken Block has been released.

It’s called Gymkhana Three Part 2; Ultimate Playground: D’Autodrome, and we have it for you below.

In it, Block executes a series of stunts in his “purpose built” Gymkhana Three Ford Fiesta.

It was shot just south of Paris, France in Linas at l’Autodrome de Linas –Montlhery, on the 1.58 mile oval track, built in 1924. It features 51 degree banks, double the standard standard incline on most NASCAR ovals. Radical.

The series has received 70 million views worldwide and is the inspiration for the brand new Gymkhana discipline in DiRT 3, which is set to launch in 2011 on PC, PS3, and Xbox 360.
