Drifting in a BMW M5 is really easy, or at least that’s the message BMW would like to convey as we watch Performance Centre…
The Euro invasion of Gymkhana GRID reaches its climax on the 28th of this month, as the best European drifters go head to head at Santa Pod Raceway, Northamptonshire with Mr Gymkhana himself, Ken Block.
In the run-up to this weekend’s British Grand Prix at Silverstone, F1 drivers Heikki Kovalainen and Vitaly Petrov got together with QPR football players Djibril Cisse and Clint Hill for a bit of penalty practice using the rear-end of a Caterham 7.
“Check this out – some bonus footage of Ken Block’s Gymkhana video showing some of the errors and damage behind the final version – Ken admits that it took several takes to film the video, but challenges anyone watching to do better…” – LelrA
“If you’d fancy having a go at being the human rollerskate in SwissPass2, then you’d want to have a go at this as well then!” – almighty_wiggles.
We deliberated long into the night. The tender for DR’s end-of-term bash had already been vexing the directors’ of the major international raceways for a few months when the deadline approached. Despite strong pitches from Fuji and Laguna Seca and an impassioned appeal from B. Ecclestone Esq to consider his little place at Paul Ricard, we fell for the charms of the 900 yard Curborough Sprint Course. Nothing else came close.
DR’s long term test fleet head to Curborough, the toughest sprint track in the civilised world (well, near Lichfield) for an end of year party that not even Hugh Heffner could match.
