If you know a bit about rally, you might have come across the name Ken Block. If not, surely you must have seen him in some of his amazing gymkhana videos. Number eight has just been released, which sees Block take on the sandy streets of Dubai in Ultimate Exotic Playground.

It’s as much an advertisement for the opulence of the city (just check the police cars doing duty) as it is for Block’s skills for driving really fast around stuff. Not to mention his rally-ready Ford Fiesta RX’s part in the exercise and the poor suffering Toyo Tires that get shredded.

We don’t want to spoil too much, but you will see him face off against some tough competition, including some glamourous supercars and another that flies slightly higher.

If you’ve never checked out one of Block’s videos, you’re in for a treat when you hit play below. He's also featured on Top Gear, as former host James May sat in the passenger as the pair navigated their way through an abandoned airfield.
