Rally driver Ken Block, DC Shoes and Ford Racing have teamed up once again to release a follow-up to "Gymkhana Four: The Hollywood Megamercial." The new chapter, titled "DC Gymkhana Four: Bonus Edit," focuses on Block's behind-the-wheel driving while incorporating never-before-seen shots and all-new angles of previous shots. DC Shoes calls the new edit a "raw, more focused action edit."
According to Block, 44, the co-founder and Chief Brand Officer of DC Shoes, "This edit is way more focused on the driving that I was doing [in Gymkhana Four.] I also think that this video really does a good job demonstrating the difficulty of some of the obstacles I had to negotiate. 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."
"Gymkhana Four: The Hollywood Megamercial," was released nine months ago and has garnered 17 million views to date online.
To support the release of the new video, DC is releasing all-new Gymkhana Four-related products, including posters and two different shirts to commemorate the video. In addition to the new products, DC is also offering a new online contest in which four grand prize winners will win a Gymkhana Four wheel autographed by Ken Block, provided by Fifteen52 Wheels, and a one day voucher to Team O'Neil Rally School, provided by Ford Racing. Fans can enter to win starting today until May 29 at www.dcshoes.com/gymkhanafoursweepstakes.
Block will be competing in round one of the 2012 Global RallyCross Championships this weekend at Charlotte Motor Speedway in Charlotte, N.C.
