GYMKHANA GRID 101:
Tyre slaying, car control, mental agility, and pure unadulterated hooning against the clock. This is Gymkhana GRiD. It all started with one man. The Head Hoonigan in charge, the chief clutch kicker, the boss of the blacktop; Ken Block. In 2008 Ken introduced his own brand of automotive madness online with the airing of ‘Gymkhana One – The Practice video’. 10 videos and nearly a 400 million worldwide views later, and the rest they say is history. Stepping things up a gear again, Gymkhana GRiD takes Ken’s concept and flips it into competition mode. Drivers compete head to head, and against the clock, on a predetermined course within ‘The GRiD’. The format made its debut in the summer of 2013 at the Los Angeles X-Games, and hasn’t looked in its rear view mirror since.
