Gymkhana Grid Boasts A Ton of Formula Drift Drivers and Not Much Else

So Gymkhana Grid just released this promotional video promoting the Irwindale Speedway event this weekend and the drivers list read like a Formula Drift event and Ken Block. Well Vaughn Gittin Jr. will be in an unknown car (well he knows but won’t tell us), Tanner Foust, ACP, Dai Yoshihara, and Stephan Verdier. Joon Maeng will also be running in his Lucas Oil S13 seen above along with possibly some other FD drivers that were not listed in the promotion. Will you be attending Gymkhana Grid or Formula G this Saturday?

    If I got time I’ll make it out for the main event… if not oh well

    That commercial was funny though.

    Go Russakoff!

    Formula G?

  3. Mike Peters says:

    Hasn’t JR been going to rally school?

    This is a completely out of the blue guess, but it would be cool to see two Monstor/Ford Fiestas going nuts.

    Gymkhana, keeping it madd classy by calling travis a pussy. you should also call out juan pablo montoya while u are at it. I bet he’s forgotten how to turn right as well.

    Alex Pfeiffer and his home made hot rod FTW!!!

    I wanted to go, but didn’t have the money to make two trips to Irwindale nearly back to back. SO, I will be at 100 Drifters of December at Summit Point.

  7. Justin B says:

    Just got an email that says Vaughn will be in Ken Block’s 78 Escort RS

  8. Gavin Fernandez says:

    Andrew Comrie-Picard FTW!! Canadian pride :P

    So how this is looking is we have a bunch of drift cars not even set up for any real grip, going against an all wheel drive grip machine.

    This is a joke right? there’s going to be no competition besides maybe Pfieffer if he has r-comps or something. It’s basically Block just beating up on a bunch of cars way out classed.

    there are AWD / RWD ‘classes’

  11. YOitzJDM says:

    Block
    Foust (if he drives the fiesta)
    Steph Verdier (converting his car to rally spec)
    ACP
    a bunch of time attack / rally guys nobody has heard of
    NOT TRAVIS PASTRANA (P*$SY)

    RWD:
    Essa (v10 bimmer… final voyage in USA?)
    Maeng (s13.5)
    Pfeiffer (Soarer)
    JR (old escort)
