Gymkhana GRID visits Madrid, Spain
Gymkhana GRID traveled to Madrid, Spain, on Saturday, Nov. 2, for the finale of Gymkhana GRIDs European Gauntlet tour, which has visited France, Germany, Hungary and more over the last several months.
In the technical all-wheel drive category, defending champion Dmitrij Sribnyi beat out Vladimir Ulamov in the finals to pick up his second winner's check, which he received from Ken Block himself.
Australian drifter Luke Fink won the rear-wheel drive category. Hungarian female racer Nikolette Szanto took second, followed by 2012 Gymkhana runner-up Luke Woodham in third.
In the new Super Car contest, Ken Block, Liam Doran, Anton Marklund and local favorite Nani Roma battled it out. Roma ended up beating out Block in the two-race showdown. "It's nice to win in Spain, in front of Ken Block," said Roma. "It's also very special for my team who built this car by hand ... I feel really good and I'm grateful for the invitation to come and race."
"I had an awesome time out here in Spain this weekend," said Gymkhana mastermind Ken Block. "I'm stoked that so many people made the trip out to catch the action. I had a lot of fun going up against the All Wheel Drive guys."
