GYMKHANA GRID 2016: EUROPEAN GAUNTLET FINALS

Oct 312016

Triple FIA World Champion Petter Solberg, reigning GRiD Champion Luke Woodham, World RX racer Reinis Nitišs, multiple X-Games medalist Liam Doran, and Gymkhana GRiD founder Ken Block make motorsport history at the fifth edition of the Gymkhana GRiD: European Gauntlet Series Final.

We don’t need to tell you the racing was intense, and we definitely don’t need to tell you that the stack of smoking tyres at the end of the incredible three-day event was almost as high as the Acropolis itself. The big news is that after an impressive fire-spitting roster of 55 cars went head to head and against the clock, Petter Solberg andLuke Woodham emerged victorious in the All-Wheel Drive (AWD) and Rear-Wheel Drive (RWD) class respectively.
 
Even with the event occupying its usual late-October slot in the race season, come race day the sun scorched through the cloudy autumn Athenian sky, lighting up the grandstands filled with fans who had swapped the dusty banksides of the Acropolis rally for the amphitheater-style tribunes around the tight GRiD track.
