Master of Hooning, Ken Block and DC Shoes have announced today that their 5th installment of the Gymkhana series will be released July 9th, 2012 on DC Shoes YouTube Channel at 10 AM EST.
Taking place on the legendary hilly streets of San Francisco, we can only speculate at the amount of fun the Monster Energy World Rally Team driver had, as they soon became victim to Ken Block’s tire slaying habits. Without question, the streets of San Francisco make Gymkhana FIVE the most unique project to date in the franchise’s history. And for good measure, a few world records and a surprise guest have been thrown in too.
“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!” – Ken Block
