GYMKHANA GRID 2017
HEADS TO SOUTH AFRICA
Are you ready to head on the safari of shred, and braai some tyres? Gymkhana GRiD is boosting away from European shores and heading for the sun scorched asphalt of South Africa for its 2017 season ending showdown.
Now celebrating its sixth year of tyre slaying competition, Gymkhana GRiD is locked and loaded for the 18th and 19th of November, and set to shred the tread at the impressive Carnival City resort. Haven’t heard of Gymkhana GRiD before? You should have! A racing format like no other, that mixes donuts with clipping points, and powerslides with apexes, it’s the tyre smoke filled vision of racing genius and head Hoonigan in charge – Ken Block.
Gymkhana GRiD’s unique competition setup is unlike any other, and allows small power to take down big BHP in all out automotive combat. Split into two classes, Gymkhana GRiD gives drivers of All Wheel Drive (AWD) and Rear Wheel Drive (RWD) cars the chance to go head to head, and against the clock, on a custom designed course.
What’s more it’s set to be an epic double header of season showdowns, with the finale of the 2017 FIA World Rallycross Championship presented by Monster Energy taking place in Cape Town just seven sun scorched days before Gymkhana GRiD’s finale in Carnival City.
"Gymkhana GRiD has been growing year on year, and to have it expand to an incredible country like South Africa is very exciting; I’m really looking forward to it,”said Ken Block. “When I was last there for Clarkson, Hammond and May Live in 2016 my team and I had such a warm welcome. South Africans are very passionate about motorsport, and I enjoyed my time down there a lot. We have some big plans in place for the GRiD track this year – it’s going to bigger and better than ever before!”
