Sit down, strap in, and hold on; it’s T-Minus one week until GRiD 2018 goes live.
The cream of the crop from Drift, World RX, and Gymkhana will be rolling into the Carnival City Casino Resort in Johannesburg for a showdown like no other December 1st. In what will be GRiD’s seventh consecutive year of tyre slaying finales Ken Block will roll out with Petter Solberg, Johan Kristoffersson, Daigo Saito, and Luke Woodham, and a bursting GRiD of podium hungry drivers to shred the tread.
As always the custom designed Gymkhana GRiD course will feature obstacles including cones, tyres, barrels, doughnut boxes and clipping points, which the drivers have to manoeuvre around with the least amount of mistakes. Each driver must record a time by completing a lap of two custom designed courses. Split into two classes, drivers go head to head in All Wheel Drive (AWD) and Rear Wheel Drive (RWD) clutch- kicking machinery.
