Ken Block is at it again.

The rallycross racer and gymkhana king on Tuesday released the ninth installment in the Gymkhana series that started almost a decade ago.

It’s called Gymkhana Nine: Raw Industrial Playground and is a must for anyone that’s into fast cars and ruin porn. No, it's not Detroit he's in but rather Buffalo, New York.

The car kicking up all the dust is Block’s Ford Motor Company [NYSE:F] Focus RS RX Rallycross car, which he’s using for the 2016 season of the World Rallycross Championship. It’s got 600 horsepower on tap and will sprint from 0-60 mph in less than 2.0 seconds.

Interestingly, the original plan for the latest in Block’s Gymkhana series was to film it in Australia, as the new clip has been released to help promote the Forza Horizon 3 video game which is set in Australia. The authorities Down Under wanted nothing of it so Buffalo it was.

The first video in the series was called Gymkhana Testing and Practice and was run on Block's own site back in 2008. It went viral and taxed the capacities of his private server. Companies liked the publicity it drew, and their sponsorship dollars allowed Block to quit his job as a marketing executive at DC Shoes and pursue a racing career full time.
