I am glad to say I am the official photographer for this event, which I might add is going to completely blow your mind. I can’t wait to see you all there.
Almost ten years ago, the Internet exploded with the discovery of Ken Block. His consummate precision and rather natty skills at “Gymkhana” has continued to enthral petrol heads, astounded at his unmistakeable talent behind the wheel. Ken began his professional rally driving career in 2005 and has competed at the top of the sport for Subaru, and more recently, Ford. He became the first American driver to campaign for the World Rally Championship and is currently competing in the Global Rallycross Championship, as well as selected FIA World Rallycross and WRC events.
It is perhaps his Gymkhana videos though that have turned Block into a bona fide online phenomenon. “Gymkhana” is an automotive sport that requires drivers to skilfully manoeuvre their cars around a series of cones, slaloms, 180 degree turns, 360 degree turns, figure 8 turns and other obstacles using extreme acceleration, braking and drifting. Ken took this sport and added his creativity and flair and has, to date, created seven jaw-dropping YouTube videos with an impressive 257+ million views over the past 6 years.
Motoring rally phenomenon and Youtube sensation Ken Block, will Gymkhana LIVE in his all new 845bhp modified all-wheel-drive 1965 ‘notchback’ Mustang at this year’s event alongside hosts Jeremy, James and Richard.
In an exciting first for SA and Africa as a whole, Ken – dubbed an “absolute and utter motoring hooligan” – will do what he does best inside the Ticketpro Dome, JHB on 12-14 June.
