All The Glory of Ken Block’s Gymkhana Ten in 60 GoPro Seconds
If we were to sum up GoPro Athlete Ken Block’s latest video Gymkhana TEN into two words, they’d be skrrt skrrt. But that doesn’t even begin to describe the car-handling mastery Ken demonstrates. So instead, we summed up the aptly titled “Ultimate Tire Slaying Tour” into 60 seconds of tire-shredding GoPro footage.
This is the first gymkhana drop from Ken in two years, and in all its glory, Gymkhana TEN is nearly 20 minutes. From Route 66 in Texas to frozen lake plunges in Sweden, it’s equally terrifying and mesmerizing to watch Ken rip around the world in five of the Hoonigan crew’s finest vehicles—the Climbkhana 1965 Hoonicorn V2 Ford Mustang, the 2018 World Rally Championship Ford Fiesta, the Ford Focus RS RX from Gymkhana Nine, the new 914-horsepower 1977 Ford F-150 Hoonitruck and the 1991 Ford Escort RS Cosworth.
“I can’t believe it has been ten years of making these Gymkhana videos,” Ken said. “That’s wild! So, for number ten, we tried to make it the biggest and best.”
Ken has been a part of the GoPro family since 2012, and he’s been pushing the GoPro limits from day one, leveraging our cameras to capture shots that weren’t possible with traditional cameras.
For Gymkhana TEN, Ken focused on harnessing the power of Fusion and HERO6 Black, mounting both inside and outside of the vehicles or even using them as drop cams to immerse viewers in the peak moments of riskier shots. Both cameras allowed him to go from blowing up piñatas in the streets of Guanajuato, Mexico to braving freezing temperatures without worry.
