Monster Energy Australia has announce a extra run of free tickets to the Ken Block Gymkhana World Tour event at Melbourne’s Calder Park Raceway on September 3.

Due to popular demand, the additional 1000 tickets will add to the 6000 free tickets that were secured in less than five hours last week.

The new release will be available at at 9am on Monday July 18.

Tickets are strictly limited to 2 per person. Onsite parking will be available. Parking tickets are $5 and are only available as pre-purchased tickets via Ticketmaster with general admission tickets.

All funds collected from the parking fees will be donated to Bravehearts.

A successful opening stop of the tour in Austria prompted the Rally ace to request the release of extra tickets, ensuring as many fans as possible are able to witness the September 3 spectacle.

Block is currently filming the highly anticipated Gymkhana 4 video clip in Vienna, Austria.

“Gymkhana World Tour Austria was dope!” Block said.

“The crowd turnout over in Vienna was huge and much more than we anticipated. Everyone really enjoyed the show and I was stoked with the course that we had going there. I’m definitely amped up for the next two stops.
“When I heard how quickly the tickets for World Tour Australia sold out, I made a few calls and managed to free up 1000 extra tickets, just so that anyone that missed out on the initial batch has a second chance to score some.
“Australia is one of the mecca’s of hooning, so I’m really looking forward to getting down there for the final stop of my Gymkhana World Tour because I know the Aussie fans will appreciate the tyre smoke in their faces. Plus, with the layout of this event, the fans will be right on top of all the action.”

For the ultimate fan experience, Monster Energy is also giving the chance to one lucky punter to ‘Win a Ride in Ken Block’s Car’.
