Rally driver Ken Block races around Universal Studios

August 17, 2011 |  8:12 am

It's pretty amazing what rally driver Ken Block can do with a car.

Sure, his gymkhana feats may be on a closed course (and a decent way for him to sell shoes), but they're nothing short of incredible.

Below is Block's latest gymkhana effort -- a hair-raising thrill ride through the backroads and tourist attractions of the Universal Studios lot in Studio City. The best part is when he spins his Ford Fiesta around some "Planet of the Apes" extra riding a Segway... Marty McFly never did anything like that on the fictional streets of Hill Valley:

And if that wasn't a wild enough ride for you, check out Block's crash during the Rally of Portugal earlier this year:
