Burning rubber, tyre smoke and exhaust-pipe flames at Gymkhana Grid

Run Ride Dive Motorsport

If burning rubber, tyre smoke and exhaust-pipe flames are your thing, than this weekend’s Gymkhana Grid AutoCircus event at Carnival City will satisfy your craving for all three.

We were treated to a small demonstration of what to expect on Saturday and Sunday by Defending Champion Petter Solberg, Ken Block, World Rallycross Champion Johan Kristoffersson, Andreas Bakkerud, Nikolett Szanto and South Africa’s Jason Webb.

If you’re not quite sure what Gymkhana Grid is, then the simplest way to explain it would be driving skill. These incredibly talented drivers maneuver their cars around an obstacle course at high speed in an elimination match-up. To win it , you must survive the head-to-head races against equally talented and determined champion drivers.

On top of the world class gymkhana action, crowd favourite Terry Grant will be performing in a variety of his stunt vehicles.

There will be some near misses and some wall touching action, that’s just the nature of the sport. It’s non-stop high energy adrenaline pumping action. If insane driving skills is your thing, don’t miss this Monster event! You might even get a selfie with the Monster girls!
