Block Debuts Footkhana

Following the tease of an all-new video project with Castrol last week, Hoonigan Racing Division’s Ken Block is pleased to announce the debut of a fun, different style of Gymkhana video project called Footkhana. A collaborative effort with international football star, Neymar Jr., and Castrol, Footkhana combines world-famous driving with world-famous football skills in a head-to-head competition of man in a machine versus man and his feet.

Not to be confused with the future Gymkhana SEVEN that will drop later this year, Footkhana was designed from the start to be a new and entertaining exploration on how Block’s Gymkhana driving could be utilized in a fun way doing something different than of his normal Gymkhana GRID competitions and Gymkhana video series.

“It’s always amazing to me when people like Neymar Jr. are aware of me because of my Gymkhana videos,” said Block. “Neymar’s one of the biggest names in football [soccer] and it was rad to work with him on this project. I’m stoked that Castrol was able to help us bring the whole thing together and present me with the new challenges of hitting soccer balls with precision slides while I navigated the Footkhana playing field that they created for us. Never in a million years did I think I’d ever be trying to score goals with my Ford Fiesta, but it actually was a ton of fun for both of us. I’m pretty sure that Neymar’s never had to try and score a goal with a rally car defending the net before!”

Curious as to how the experiment of blending the completely opposite worlds of football and motorsport turned out? Check out the video here:

Mr. Ken Block: Hi I am writing to you because my son Kyle is in awe of you. You have been his inspiration for quite some time. He looks up to you as his idol.  He is 19 years old and on the 19th of April was involved in a motorcycle accident where he collided with a semi truck and the semi ultimately ran over his right side shattering his arm and leg sending his femur, tibia and ankle thru his skin. The first couple of days were very scary for he has had a total of 13 blood transfusions. Kyle has broken over 30 bones in his two arms, two legs, his foot and ankle and his tail bone.  On May 2nd will be his 4th surgery and this is on his ankle and foot where we will find out whether or not he will keep his foot or if they will have to amputate it.  He is scared but incredibly strong!  If that wasn't bad enough 4 days after that his father my husband had a stroke and it's also in the hospital.  The reason I'm contacting you is because his birthday is on May 3rd and would be awesome if you could make an appearance in his hospital room. Even if just a quick moment he would be in his glory!!! We also have a fundraiser going on for him on my Facebook page where you can read up on him if you would like to. Thank you so much for reading my email and I'm paying I hear from you soon. God bless!
