The extravaganza known as Ken Block’s Gymkhana videos will see its latest addition on July 9 when Gymkhana Five will be released onto the Internet for all of us to enjoy.
Over the years, the Gymkhana videos have garnered a lot of attention, with the most recent iteration featuring some Hollywood-spec environments and details. Never to run out of ways to impress, Gymkhana Five was shot in the city of San Francisco and will undoubtedly take advantage of the steep roadways that it has to offer.
Of course Block will once again be behind the wheel of a Ford Fiesta, and what little we know about the upcoming film is that a few world records were set, and a surprise guest was thrown in.
“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.”
