Event Dopeness >>> Gymkhana Grid at Hollywood Park
Writeup after the jump!
I wake up Saturday and check my phone, and by check my phone, I mean I automatically check twitter and totally ignore the emails. All I see on Twitter is Joon Maeng tweeting pictures from something called Gymkhana Grid. So, I look a little deeper. I see it’s at Hollywood Park, and I thought “Hollywood Park? Seriously? That can’t be right. It’s in the middle of the city”. Well, I was wrong. I got there on Media Day late, and just kind of walked in with my 7D/50MM. By the time I got there Joon had blown the motor on his S13.5, Kyle Mohan was packing up, and I had enough time to get cleared for Media for the next day.
The turnout on Sunday was crazy. I unfortunately had to leave early, but I’d consider it a successful day. I got to see friends and take pictures, I really missed shooting!
Speaking of friends, OMGDrift supporter Alex Pfeiffer was out there killing it in his Hot Rod Locost thing. I’m not good at being technical, especially when it comes to this. All I know is that it was amazingly quick, and driven by an absolute thug.
Mike Essa was also out there, sporting a brand new look. I love everything about it, looks so much more aggressive!
After this picture of Ken Block, I don’t really have much else to say! I mean, it was a great event, and I’m really really looking forward to the main competition at Irwindale. I hope to see all of you out there! It looks like it will be a great event to support. Check below this to see a random assortment of pictures.
See everyone in Vegas soon!
