Think you’ve got mad car control skills, and want to throw down against the likes of Ken Block? Want to do it in front of thousands of spectators, on a course designed by Ken Block? Now you can, thanks to an event called Gymkhana Grid.
The event will be held on December 3 and 4 at Toyota Speedway in Irwindale, California. It’s open to all drivers, regardless of experience or background, so you’ll be going up against some major talent. Better find an empty parking lot and roast a few sets of KDWs to get in the groove, because winning the event isn’t going to be easy.
Don’t know what gymkhana is? Think of it as ballet with cars, where drivers compete in drifting and driving events to show how well they can toss a car in to a corner and reign it in again. This video will give you a good idea of the skills you’ll need to master to be competitive; if you can drive a car like Ken Block, then you’ve got a good shot of being in the running at Gymkhana Grid.
