Ken Block’s Gymkhana series (consisting of four parts) has raked up a strong 140+ million vies on YouTube. Come July 9, that number will jump significantly as Block and DC Shoes are getting ready to release Gymkhana FIVE, which will be filmed on the streets of San Francisco, California.
“My idea for Gymkhana FIVE was simple,” said Block. “I wanted to build on the ultimate playground concept from Gymkhana THREE, and bring the franchise back to that raw and fast feel that the earlier videos had. I’ve always wanted to film a Gymkhana video in a city and there are few places as unique and iconic with such amazing topography as San Francisco. While movies like Bullit and various chase scenes have tried to use San Francisco to the fullest, I’m pretty confident that I’ve proven there was a lot left to be done on those amazing streets!”
Block will be driving his famous Ford Fiesta H.F.H.V. racecar
I think I need a Gymkhana fix at least once a month.
