Head Hoonigan in charge, Ken Block, has taken his penchant for killing tires and created his most cinematic film to-date. Piloting his world-famous Ford Fiesta RX43, Block decimates its Toyo tires through the high-scale city infrastructure and into the exotic desert of Dubai. When 200+mph supercars, driving on two wheels and 1000+hp is hardly out of the norm, you can say Block had to pull out all the stops. Call our bluff.
Unless you’ve been under a rock, chances are you haven’t missed it: last night, around 9pm, Ken Block’s Gymkhna_Eight went live to the masses, introducing Dubai as the latest playground for his ever-impressive all-wheel-drive antics. In attending the world premier party, we brought along our cameras to capture some of what goes on behind the scenes on such a grand night.
This past weekend, the Hoonigan team opened their doors to Southern California’s classic BMW enthusiasts. As their second run at their newly-established “Hoonigan Club Days,” each event caters to a new marque and niche. This time, they welcomed out everyone with an affinity for roundels and burnouts. Unable to let such a Saturday slip by, we went to Long Beach and joined in on the fun.
For more than just ourselves, weekends represent a sacred separation between work and play. It’s safe to assume we all look forward to Friday at 5:00PM, no matter what our weekend plans may be. Whether it’s drinks with friends, some couch slumping, or a day spent in the great outdoors, time to ourselves is vital.
Over the past several years, the day-to-day at StanceWorks has grown ever-busier, with more and more piling atop the plate. Working on everything from events to opportunities, and from content to merchandise, we find ourselves sometimes struggling to find a balance, and moreover, to find time for the “non-business” side of the company.
