Top Gear: Ken Block vs James May's sphincter

A visibly pale-and-about-to-vomit James May rides shotgun with gymkhana rally legend, DC Shoes founder and action-sports king Ken Block.

It's Ken in his Subaru Impreza on a specially designed desert-junkyard course, with motocross legend Ricky Carmichael joining in the fun halfway through.

As always, Ken's gymkana is designed as much for visual impact and location gimmicks as driving skill. This one takes in desert wastelands, fire stations, bomber planes and more, as James hangs on for dear life and Ken tries to have him dirty his overalls from sheer startlement.

Cue some shots of May looking stoic, if queezy and borderline incontinent, and some impressive extreme motorsports scenery from two masters of the art: Ken Block and Top Gear.
