Hoonigan relaunches Ken Block Gymkhana Grid

A new series of events will return in the USA this fall

If there was one thing the late Ken Block made famous, it was gymkhana.

No, not the equestrian event. The art of sliding a car around some obstacles in the fastest and coolest way possible.

Whether it was through his YouTube videos or the competitive Gymkhana Grid events that he co-founded, Ken Block was the undisputed master.

Gymkhana Grid hasn’t run since 2019, but this fall it is returning with a series of events in the US in a bid to remember Ken and what he did best.

Announced via a 24/7 livestream hosted on the Hoonigan YouTube channel as part of what it is calling 4/3 day – a reference to Ken’s race number of #43 – Hoonigan lifers Brian Scotto and Ron Zaras are among those planning to take part in the event.

A petition has also been launched to officially make April 3 ‘4 3 Day’ so that Ken’s legacy can be remembered in a “meaningful and lasting way”.

The petition can be viewed and signed here, while anyone wishing to watch plenty of behind-the-scenes and even unseen Block content can watch the 24/7 livestream here.

More details of the relaunched Gymkhana Grid are expected to be released soon.
