In their second joint production, Ultra HD HDR broadcaster and producer of native UHD content covering action sports, entertainment and lifestyle, Insight TV is teaming with Monster Energy to show popular motorsport programme Gymkhana GRiD.

The show will begin transmission in early 2018 on InsightTV Channels and streaming service INSIGHT.TV, and will follow several drivers taking part in what the partners call an ‘unrivalled’ motorsport event. This latest documentary follows on from the successful production of InsightTV and Monster Energy’s recent collaboration, Secrets of DarkFEST.

An extension of rally driver and social media sensation Ken Block’s Gymkhana videos, the race, open to any driver, features stunts and obstacles, often in the dark with no headlights. It was held this year in Johannesburg at the Carnival City Resort in South Africa from 18-19 November.

The programme will show unique behind-the-scenes footage and will follow the back stories of several drivers including: Luke Woodham, Petter Solberg, Ken Block, Adam Elder, Nikolett Szanto and Dmitrij Sribnyj. 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,” said Arun Maljaars, InsightTV’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.”
