Hammertown is where the starting line meets the audience, and where vendors and spectators gather before, during, and after the race to have fun, party, and check out cool 4x4s. This year over a million people tuned in online to see KOH race action live during KOH week in Johnson Valley. While the race is live-streamed and much of the action on the trails is covered by the media, those who don’t actually attend KOH don’t get to experience Hammertown and all its greatness.
While we were at King of the Hammers this year we took some time to shoot this video of Hammertown, located at the start of the KOH racecourse in the heart of Johnson Valley, California. We want you, the online viewers, to have the chance to feel what it’s like to walk down the aisles of vendor row, take a firsthand look at some of the most intense 4x4 builds we’ve ever seen, and experience the sights and sounds of KOH without all the dust. Hammertown is where the off-road community congregates to celebrate the gnarliest 4x4 race in the world. Along with race cars that are actually competing in the races, KOH draws builders and 4x4 enthusiasts from around the country and the world who want to show off their crazy campers and off-road vehicles. If this video doesn’t completely convince you to go to KOH next year, this one should do the trick.
