Yes, you read right. The Clarkson, Hammond and May Live organisers are thrilled to announce that international rally-driving phenomenon and YouTube sensation, Ken Block will star at this year’s event, alongside hosts Jeremy, James and Richard, in the all-new arena show.
In an exciting first for SA, and Africa as a whole, Ken – dubbed, “an absolute and utter motoring hooligan” - will do what he does best inside the TicketPro Dome. It will be Ken’s first time on African soil and the only event in Africa on the Clarkson, Hammond and May Live tour. Tickets are available for 2015 only.
If all that isn’t enough to whet your appetite, Ken Block is also bringing along, his brand-new 630kW modified all-wheel-drive 1965 notchback Ford Mustang ‘Hoonicorn. He launched the car with his latest Gymkhana video in November 2014 – Gymkhana 7, which has received over 20 million views so far on YouTube.
Ken had this to say about visiting Johannesburg this June:
“I’m stoked to have been invited by Clarkson, Hammond and May to this massive motoring event,” said Block. “I’ve had the pleasure of working with these guys before and it’s always been a lot of fun. I think bringing what I do to an arena format is going to be awesome and I can’t wait to meet the fans in South Africa. It’ll be my first time visiting the country and I’ve heard they’re passionate about all things automotive, so I think they’re going to enjoy what I’m going to be doing with my Hoonicorn from Gymkhana 7.”
