I’m a bit late with this but I’ve finally gone through my photos from the Ken Block Gymkhana Invitational event last weekend and posted the gallery to the MotorworldHype Facebook page. If you didn’t hear by now Tanner Foust won in the AWD class while Dai Yoshihara won in the RWD class. Counting the X Games this is the second time in 2010 that Formula D drivers pretty much swept a non-drifting motorsport event! All in all the event I think was successful enough for Mr. Block to consider expanding his Gymkhana event into a full-on series. Rumor has it that he just may do that in the near future with a 6 event calendar. Stay tuned for the announcement on that. In the meantime check out our galleries at the links below:

Ken Block has had so much fun doing his Gymkhana videos and as a result has gained massive cred as the ultimate hoon. It appears that he wants to let other people in on the Gymkhana fun now since I’ve gotten word that Ken Block is planning a Gymkhana invitational event called “Gymkhana Grid“.
Not too much is known so far besides the fact that the event will be in December 3rd and 4th at Toyota Speedway in Irwindale, CA AKA “House Of Drift”. There is also a good chance that the Gymkhana course will be designed by Ken Block himself.
It all sounds pretty exciting to us! We’ll try to dig up a press release to get more info on this for you.
