Ken Block’s Gymkhana Grid Invitationals Day one

11

Just got back from Day 1 of the Ken Block Gymkhana Invitational’s. It was weird seeing Irwindale with a whole new face lift on the track compared to Formula Drift/XDC, guess I just wasn’t used to it. I got to tell you seeing all the new gymkhana technical layout and seeing it done was frawking awesome and its something you got to see live!

My day started bright and early with the drivers/media meeting with Ken Block and one of the event organizers on the rules and regulations of the track. The track was tight so the drivers had to be very careful and pretty precise cause they get penalized 1/2 a second every time an obstacle was hit. The race set up was also a bit familiar because it was set like a two car rally race sort of like xGames to get best time, yet they HAVE to be sliding around to put on a great show. So basically get the fast time and show off as much as you can, that sounds awesome! There was a lot of familiar drivers that we all knew from FD like FD Champ Vaughn Gittin Jr, Joon Maeng, Tanner Faust, Matt Powers, Alex Pieffer, Ross Petty, Dai & more . Also some new drivers never be seen before, some drivers/teams as far as Finland. Again, you have to be they’re too seeing the craziness on the track and its well worth it!

Day2 aka Last Day is tomorrow! If you’re free you have to come out.

See you guys there!!
