Ken Block And The Grand Tour Might Work Together
Wouldn't be the first time!
With Ken Block appearing on numerous occasions on Top Gear, most recently with the Hoonicorn around London, Ken is no stranger to working with the trio. And from an interview at the SEMA show in Las Vegas, he's hinted that another get-together may be on the books.
Now he's employed by Amazon with his own unscripted, behind the scenes show which will revolve around his Gymkhana series, Ken Block says there is a large chance that he will work with the Clarkson, Hammond, and May in the future.
“Absolutely, I hope so. We really enjoy working with those guys and we’ve talked a little bit about some ideas to work back and forth between our two series and hopefully we can work that out soon,” Block told NESN Fuel. “We haven’t gotten anything done yet because we just announced the series, but now that we’ve announced it, we can start working on more of those possibilities.”
His new show will follow the behind the scenes nature of the Gymkhana series, specifically the latest, 'GymkhanaTEN'. It's going to be the best yet featuring five of Ken's high powered modified vehicles and five different locations.
Some have pondered whether this is the final Gymkhana episode, and that Block wants to go out with a bang, hence the increased budget and level of production. IF you haven't seen the trailer, watch the video placed above.
“The concept of what we’re doing is way beyond actually what I originally thought of doing,” Block said when asked about his new Amazon series. “It’s going to be really, really quite good because we’re not only covering ‘GymkhanaTEN,’ but dipping back into the history of Gymkhana and lots of fun backstories, along with peeling back the curtain and seeing behind-the-scenes with the race team — what it takes to race in the FIA World Rallycross Championship — along with just the cool behind-the-scenes of the other things that we get to go do like ‘Climbkhana‘ up on Pikes Peak.”
