Making its international debut at X Games in Los Angeles in 2013, Gymkhana GRiD is all about speed and precision. Open to all those who dare to compete against other petrol heads in their own specially modified cars.
The Gymkhana GRiD course itself features obstacles associated with the many sponsors of the series including a giant race seat, plus cones, tyres, barrels and a K-rail; which the drivers manoeuvre around with the least amount of mistakes.
Drivers must perform reversals, 180-degree spins, 360-degree spins, parking boxes, figure 8s and other advanced manoeuvres. Drifting is also encouraged where helpful or necessary.
The head-to-head rounds comprise of two runs, with competitors seeded according to their individual qualifying times. The slower driver will be eliminated, with the quicker driver progressing through to the next round. The eventual winner of each class will take on the head Hoonigan in Charge Ken Block (AWD) and his chosen pro team mate (RWD) at the last races of the event.
A true motorsport without rival, Gymkhana GRiD’s blends drifting, drag racing, and physical driving skill with mental agility.
