K1 Speed wanted to share with you some of the video footage that was captured throughout the day at 2010 Ken Block GYMKHANA Grid Invitational at the Toyota Speedway in Irwindale, California.
When all the smoke cleared the man standing on top of the podium with a 1st place finish was driver, racer, and TV host Tanner Foust. Mr. Foust, left Race designer Ken Block AKA. Mr. GYMKHANA to drive home with a second place trophy. The final in the all wheel drive class was very interesting with the head to head format. These two competitors, justifiably the most recognized names in the sport, faced each other in identical specially built, all wheel drive Ford Festiva’s, on a mirrored course. These two drivers put on a clinic in driving ability and showmanship.
Next was the Rear wheel drive class featuring a head to head battle between Daijiro Yoshihara and John Rusakoff. These two guys battled it out on the grid with Daijiro taking the first place trophy and podium stand. The rear wheel drive class is really fun to watch and these guys where really throwing it out there, to the enjoyment of the crowd.
Congratulations to all the winners and competitors on such a great event. The 2010 Ken Block GYMKHANA Grid Invitational was a blast for all that attended and K1 Speed is looking forward to next year.
