What is GYMKHANA?
GYMKHANA е първенство за мъже и жени и е валидно за държавно първенство, записано в спортния календар на българските федерации по автомобилен спорт. Провежда се в съответствие с международния спортен кодекс на ФИА, наредбата за организиране и провеждане на автомобилни състезания за съответната година.
GYMKHANA takes place on a pre-fenced and access-restricted terrain, within which various elements representing ranking tests are passed. The surface of the track can be asphalt or macadam, and at the discretion of the organizer and respecting the safety of competitors, officials and the public, sand and/or water obstacles can be included.
GYMKHANA represents a passage through this course, with the goal being to overcome all the elements of the course in the shortest time and without admitting violations leading to the accumulation of penalties in the form of penalty seconds.
History of GYMKHANA
GYMKHANA originates from India, where its original use meant a gathering place, but has evolved to mean a display of feat-based skill. GYMKHANA then made its way into the equestrian realm, being used as a term for highly skilled riding maneuvers such as tight turns, specialized jumps, sliding stops and precision movements, all in competitions or time trials. After hundreds of years of horse racing fame, GYMKHANA has evolved again, only with many more ponies.
GYMKHANA was reclassified by gears in Japan. Their skill-based approach to the term involves precision maneuvering their personal JDM cars through a course made up of parking lot cones. Drifting, spins, precision reversing and even basic parking were a big part of the early events. After all, those GYMKHANAS in the parking lot were penalized and the racers worked to set the fastest time with as few penalties as possible as they made their way through the twisty flats.
This new breed of GYMKHANA is branching out into different countries with different names, procedures and track types. The American GYMKHANA was one of those branches that Ken Block was involved in, but unfortunately it only lasted one year. However, the end of this event led to the original GYMKHANA video that we all witnessed in 2008 and started the series we enjoy today.
