It is official! Ken Block will feature at the Clarkson, Hammond and May Live scheduled for 12 – 14 June 2015 in Johannesburg at the the Ticketpro Dome.
In an exciting first for Africa, Ken – dubbed an “absolute and utter motoring hooligan” – will do what he does best with his modified Ford Mustang Hoonicorn.
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 enthrall 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.
“Gymkhana” is an automotive sport that requires drivers to skillfully 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.
If all that isn’t enough to whet your appetite, Ken Block is also bringing with him, his brand new 845bhp, modified all-wheel-drive 1965 ‘notchback’ Ford Mustang ‘Hoonicorn.
He launched the car with his latest Gymkhana video in November 2014 – Gymkhana 7, which has received over 20 million views so far on YouTube.
