COLOGNE, Germany/SAN FRANCISCO, Cali. - World Rally Star and viral video sensation Ken Block has confirmed that Gymkhana FIVE will make its global debut on Monday, July 9th via the DC ShoesYouTube channel.
Filmed on the streets of San Francisco, California, and featuring Block’s 650HP Ford Fiesta H.F.H.V, Gymkhana FIVE builds on the previous successes of the Gymkhana viral video series and it’s 140+ million views.
“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!”
Without question, the streets of San Francisco make Gymkhana FIVE the most unique project to date in the franchise’s history. And for good measure, a few world records and a surprise guest have been thrown in too. Making a return for the second year in a row is Block’s Ford Fiesta H.F.H.V. racecar, which can be seen slaying its tires on the streets of San Francisco globally on the July 9th release date.
For select media and action sport VIPs, DC will premiere the video on Friday, June 29th during Summer X Games 18.
