Modeled on the style of gymkhana made famous by Ken Block in his ‘Gymkhana Practice’ videos, OZGymkhana will see participants compete over a minimum of four specially designed tests on a tarmac surface at the Tailem Bend Motorsports Park.
OZGymkhana takes a regular bitumen motorkhana, opens it up, gives it a few more gears and adds a dash of speed. It will allow the competitors to show much more flair in tests and is expected to provide faster and more exciting action for competitors and spectators alike.
Tailem Bend Motorsport Park, which has been developed from the old Mitsubishi testing and proving grounds, was chosen because it is the perfect venue for this type of event. The 1.4km long drag strip, car parks, skid pans and access roads provide almost limitless opportunities to design the series of challenging and exciting tests, whilst providing a safe environment with little risk of injury or damage.
The team behind OZGymkhana, Ultimate Motorsport Events, is the same team who organise and run the popular Mt Alma Mile hillclimb at Inman Valley and the annual Adelaide Hills Tarmac Rally. The OZGymkhana series continues Ultimate Motorsport Events’ push to grow affordable grassroots motorsport that is accessible to as many people as possible.
