As announced last week, Ken Block and Ford have teamed up to launch a Gymkhana World Tour, which will feature stops in Austria, Australia and the United States.
“Designed to bring the Gymkhana experience to a live audience, each GWT stop will be unique not only in its location but in the content and layout of the Gymkhana course,” Ford said in a statement. “Out of each stop on the tour, Monster World Rally Team will create mini Gymkhana videos which will showcase the event.”
Block will take his Ford Fiesta on tour, which will coincide with key competition dates for Block in the FIA World Rally Championship (WRC) and at X Games 17.
“I’m really excited about my Gymkhana World Tour this summer. I’m delighted that Ford is continuing to support my love of Gymkhana in the way that they are,” said Block. “It’s something that I really enjoy doing and the fans love it as well, so to have Ford on board as I go to do this sort of thing is amazing.”
The Gymkhana World Tour will stop in Vienna, Austria on July 10 followed by a stop in the United States on July 23 at the Dodger Stadium in an elevated area overlooking down town Los Angeles. The final stop in Australia will be held the week prior to the Rally Australia at Calder Park in Melbourne on September 2-3.
