By Posted on 3 m read

Filipino fans of famous professional rally driver Ken Block fans can now have a chance to see him live in Japan this July.


Well, Monster Energy Drink is bringing three (3) lucky Pinoy fans to Ken Block Gymkhana in Japan along with local Monster Energy Drink brand ambassador Ellen Adarna.

Monster Energy Drink is gearing up to unleash professional rally driver phenomenon Ken Block in Japan in July with the “2014 Ken Block’s Japan Experience”! Block will be in Japan, along with the top drift series, D1, and 16 of their best drivers for an all-out energy-filled weekend you won’t want to miss.

Monster will be showcasing Ken’s Ford Fiesta ST car across the country, culminating in two final days of Gymkhana on June 21 and 22, and ultimately, a YouTube release of the entire program for fans to enjoy.

Gymkhana is a motorsport phenomenon gaining popularity across the globe.  Similar to autocross, gymkhana courses are complex routes filled with various obstacles that drivers must navigate through, racing against the clock as they go in an attempt to finish with the fastest time.  Beyond just being a skilled driver, memorizing the course is a significant part of achieving a fast time.

Once the flag drops at the starting line, the driver must maneuver through a predetermined “track” performing many different driving techniques. What separates gymkhana from traditional autocross events is that the gymkhana requires drivers to perform reversals, 180 degree spins, 360 degree spins, parking boxes, figure 8s, and other mind blowing skills.

Drifting is also encouraged where helpful or necessary. Essentially, a gymkhana is any event featuring a starting point, a finish line and some sort of “obstacle” to get through, around, or by, all within a certain time limit.  However, if you are thinking of competing or riding along in an event with Monster Energy and Ken Block, you better get ready to take it to the next level with features such military tanks, giant dinosaurs, beautiful Monster Girls, and other surprises.
