Monster Energy brings Gymkhana GRID to European shores for the first time
since the concept was unleashed in the US of A at the hands of Ken Block.
The tire-slaying, ball-tearing, tranny-trashing, clutch-kicking, gasoline
chugging Gymkhana GRID is back. Two years after Ken Block changed the game of
head-to-head auto racing forever, the most intense race format to ever grace the
planet will be spanning four countries and five events for European audiences to
feast on its awesomeness. Commencing with 4 qualifying events held on tight,
technical courses the series will come to a climax in a grand finale that will
feature Mr. Gymkhana himself.
Taking entries for All-Wheel-Drive and Rear-Wheel-Drive, Ken Block will be
joined by fellow king of drift Vaughn Gittin Jnr in handing out an invitation to
Euro warriors of these two distinct classes to face-off in the qualifying
events. The champs from each will get the chance to take on Ken (AWD) or Vaughn
(RWD) in Gymkhana grand-slam hedonism at the showdown. Flame and Thunder in the
UK will host the finals over the weekend of 27-28 October by which point we will
have assembled machines and their keepers of the highest order. The winners from
the 2 classes will take away a hold-all of cash and, pending Royal attendance, a
Knighthood of the Realm.
Qualifying events ahead of the finals on 27-28 October will take place at:
. International Motor Exhibition (France): 29 June - 01 July
. Trax (GB): 02 September
. Track Day (Germany): 08 September
. AutoMaxx (Holland): 16 September
