A new video from DC Shoes and Ford Racing made from raw footage of last summer’s popular “Gymkhana Four: The Hollywood Megamercial” focuses on Ken Block’s driving skills without all the Hollywood flair. The original Gymkhana Four has netted 17.8 million views in nine months.
“When we set out to do GYM4 the goal was make it visually different from GYM3,” Ken Block said in a release. “So, we incorporated lots of things that really represented the ‘Hollywood’ aspect of the video. This edit, though, is way more focused on the driving that I was doing. While I love the original, I think a lot of the fans who just want to see pure driving are going to be stoked on this.”
DC is holding an online contest to promote the new video with four grand prizes that include a Ken Block autographed Gymkhana Four wheel from Fifteen52 wheels as well as a day at Team O’Neil Rally School provided by Ford Racing. Check out DC’s site for more details on the contest.
“This re-edit gives a whole new take on GYM4 focusing on the tech and performance aspect of the Ford Fiesta, while highlighting Ken’s amazing driving skills with less smoke and mirrors,” said Jeff Taylor, vice president of marketing for DC, in a release.
