What Do Rich People Really Do All Day?

Category: Sport

I will tell you what Ken Block, half owner of DC SHOE CO does:

gym_kha_na – pronounced jim-kah-nuh

Now I’m sure, as I was, you have a very confused look on your face. What the hell is GYMKHANA? well it is as follows:

Gymkhana is about “control”. Gymkhana is primarily done on an open paved field or parking lot. The course is laid out with cones in key points to navigate to. The obstacle will often consist of slaloms, 180 degree turns, 360 degree turns, figure 8s, and some time parking boxes. The drivers goals is the get through the course as fast a possible with the least amount of mistakes. Gymkhana requires strong mental concentration and memorizing of the track, where you have to go and do next. The driver will use many techniques to effectively go through a course. Acceleration, braking, drifting & grip driving are all necessary for Gymkhana.

So it looks to me like Ken Block takes his free time and money and run’s around doing this. MUST BE NICE.
