LONG BEACH, CA: Ken Block and his team at Hoonigan Media Machine are pleased to announce that Block’s latest and biggest to-date video project of his career, Gymkhana TEN: Ultimate Tire Slaying Tour, is now streaming as a 10-day early access exclusive during the final portion of the 8th episode of his Amazon Prime Video original series, The Gymkhana Files.
Building upon the award-winning viral video franchise of Gymkhana films, Gymkhana TEN takes viewers on an epic journey to 5 very unique and different locations with 5 very unique and different cars.
The journey starts in Luleå, Sweden, with Block piloting the current 2018 Ford Fiesta WRC on snow and ice—a first-ever for Block in one of his Gymkhana films. After that the action jumps to Detroit, Michigan, with Block in his Ford Mustang RTR Hoonicorn V2, decimating his tires with 1,400 horsepower on the streets of the Motor City. From there viewers are transported to Guanajuato, Mexico, where Block can be seen ripping through the colorful streets and tunnels of a picturesque mountain town in his Ford Focus RS RX rallycross car. After that, things go full-sketch with a jump to Los Angeles, California, with Block driving his beloved Ford Escort Cosworth Group A car on a mixture of both tires and bare metal wheels, sliding dangerously out of control while creating massive sprays of sparks. Finally, viewers are brought to historic Route 66 in Shamrock, Texas, for the world debut of Block’s all-new 1977 Ford F-150 Hoonitruck in action as he absolutely wreaks havoc upon the small Texas town.
“This project has been over 2 years in the making,” said Block. “I’m so excited to finally have it streaming live on Amazon Prime, especially for all of the fans and viewers who have been following along on the process of creating this video through The Gymkhana Files. I think they’ll really enjoy the payoff today by being able to see Gymkhana TEN finally! I’d also like to take a moment to thank all of my partners on this project, it has been a massive undertaking and I couldn’t have done it without Ford, Forza, Toyo Tires, Pennzoil, Monster Energy, Can-Am and of course my team at Hoonigan. Thank you, everyone!”
For the next 10 days, Gymkhana TEN: Ultimate Tire Slaying Tour is streaming exclusively on Amazon Prime Video as the final portion of Block’s The Gymkhana Files documentary show. Starting on December 17th, Gymkhana TEN will then also be available on Hoonigan’s YouTube channel ( https://www.youtube.com/thehoonigans ) for those without Amazon Prime.
