Element of Survival: A King of The Hammers Film
The King of the Hammers is often called the most difficult one-day off-road event in the world. HeavyMetal Concepts and Hammerking Productions have collaborated to create a documentary film of the 2014 King of the Hammers event. The film is titled Element of Survival to reflect the battle teams faced to finish the race, in the end it came down to just surviving, not cleanly dominating. The team set out to capture the true experience of KOH itself and not just make another crash video.
Here’s how the film is described:
“Beyond the sprawl of the urban jungle, 150 race teams meet to do battle in the heart of the Mojave Desert in southern California. The format is ‘run what ya brung’ Unlimited 4 Wheel Drive Racing, and the stakes are higher than ever. Only 20% of the teams that take the green flag will make it to the end, the remainder being left strewn across the desert floor in the wake of one of the hardest off road races on the planet, the King of the Hammers. Follow teams in ‘Element of Survival’ as they set out to conquer harsh desert at speeds in excess of 100mph, as well as some of the hardest rock crawling North America has to offer, all in an effort to be crowned ‘King’ at the setting of the sun.”
The film will be released in July, 2014 and you can pre-order it now.
