Not counted among rally legends like Colin McRae, Sébastien Loeb and Tommi Mäkinen, Block managed to carve out a niche of his own in motorsports. A story that began in 2008 as a fun video on an abandoned airfield, drifting the tyres off a Subaru Impreza rally car, gained unprecedented fame on YouTube. The video has since got over 15 million views. Back then, Block was the co-owner of DC shoes, but now he is fully committed to Hoonigan Racing Division.The Gymkhana series of videosnine till datehas grown from fairly basic camerawork to state-of-the-art filming. The latest video features a run on the famous Pikes Peak albeit this being Block’s version of the annual hill climb. All that goes into making such epic videos has been documented in Amazon Prime’s eight-episode series, The Gymkhana Filesthe team, the driver and the effort put in by the Hoonigan team.Associated with the Japanese carmaker from his rallycross days, Block began his videos with Subarus, gradually adding various versions of the Ford Fiesta. Gymkhana 9 showcased a 2016 Ford Focus RS RX, which produced 600 bhp and 650 Nm of torque, and claimed to achieve 0-60 mph (97 kmph) under two seconds. Block and the Hoonigan Racing Division created a monster named Hoonicorn RTR. The car was unveiled in the Gymkhana 7 video, with only vague resemblance to a Mustang. It used a naturally-aspirated Roush Yates 6.7-litre V8 engine, developing 845 bhp and 720 Nm of torque. Now in its second version, the Hoonicorn needed an upgrade. The engine was upgraded with a twin-turbo set-up. These and more changes resulted in a mega 1,400 bhp and 1,250 Nm set-up.advertisementThe Amazon series serves not only as a recap of those milestones but also as a curtain-raiser for the 10th edition of the Gymkhana videos, which is set to release on December 7. The video will also debut a special build, a 1977 Ford F-150 Hoonitruck, as a tribute to Block’s father who owned the same base truck.
