Amusing Classic Car Gymkhana
gymkhana | January 2, 2015
When you hear the word “Gymkhana,” the first thing that comes to mind is Ken Block hooning around in an overpowered drift car, burning rubber and cutting it dangerously close to all manner of obstacles. If you’re looking for that sort of thing, sorry. This is not that sort of video.
In this fun video from a recent meeting of the Shonan Historic Car Club in Japan, we’re greeted by drivers in classic roadsters, each of which show off their maneuvering skills in their quirky old cars. The competition was dominated mostly by Hondas – though they did throw in a Fiat 500 and a Citroën 2CV just for fun. And that blue T360 truck is just hysterical.
You won’t be seeing the sort of smoky tires and sideways skids you’re used to in Block’s videos, but you will still have a big smile on your face by the time the video is over.
