Photo Dump | Gymkhana Grid

This past weekend I had the chance to check out the first Gymkhana Grid event at the Toyota Speedway at Irwindale. This was the first time in a long time that I was able to show up to the event late and actually walk around as a spectator. It’s always good to catch up with industry colleagues and talk about other things besides work. I also had a chance to take some quick photos from the event focusing on things that caught my eye.
