In this second joint production, Insight TV and Monster Energy follow world-class drivers as they head to South Africa to take on one of the world’s fastest and craziest drift courses.
Insight TV, one of the world’s largest UHD HDR broadcasters and producer of native UHD content covering action sports, entertainment and lifestyle, announces that its partnership with Monster Energy continues with a major documentary production. The show, which will TX in Q1 2018 on Insight TV channels and streaming service INSIGHT.TV, will follow several drivers taking part in unrivalled motorsport sensation, Gymkhana GRiD. An extension of the legendary rally driver and social media sensation Ken Block’s Gymkhana videos, the race is open to every driver on the planet.
The programme will show unique behind-the-scenes footage and will follow the backstories of several drivers including Luke Woodham, Petter Solberg, Ken Block, Adam Elder, Nikolett Szanto and Dmitrij Sribnyj. The race, which features mind-blowing stunts and breath-taking obstacles, often in the dark with no headlights, was held in Johannesburg at the Carnival City Resort in South Africa on 18 and 19 November. The show gets the low down on the drivers, how they prepare, what their motivation is and what it means to become Gymkhana GRiD champion, covering all the drama and discipline behind this growing motorsport.
“With millions of fans around the world, particularly on social media this event is a huge draw for petrol heads and we’re delighted to bring unseen, behind-the-scenes footage in this no-holds-barred reality documentary,” says Arun Maljaars, Insight TV’s Global Content strategy manager. “If you’ve ever wondered what drift drivers get up to when they’re not driving and how they build themselves up to be among the best in the world, then wonder no more.”
This latest documentary follows on from the successful production of Insight TV and Monster Energy’s recent collaboration, Secrets of DarkFEST.
