By now we’ve all partaken in the automotive hoonery gold known as Gymkhana at least 80 million billion times. Nothing beats wasting away the hours at work like watching Pro hooner Ken Block toss his Subaru/Fiesta around like it’s a cheap toy. Evidently he’s a bit bored of the “usual” Gymkhana, so he has called out other pro drivers to take him on at the world’s first ever Gymkhana Grid Invitational.
Once the idea was conceived Block’s team threw together the crack fueled, hilariously awesome promotional video above providing what we believe to be one absolute truth: Travis Pastrana is a “pussy”. Nascar sucks. Period.
REAL drivers like 2010 Formula Drift Champion Vaughn Gitten Jr., Top Gear USA’s own Tanner Foust, drifter extraordinaire Dai Yoshihara and more will be shredding the pavement against the clock and each other. This epically awesome, mind blowing event should fill our internet viewing at work pleasure for many, many hours to come!
If you happen to be lucky enough to be there, send us your pics, videos, bottled sweat or whatever you can from the event itself.
