What is it?
Using a street-legal car Gymkhana/solo/autocross courses typically involves only the use of first and second gear and the course will typically be from 0:45 to 1:30 in length. Courses are laid out with cones representing “obstacles” to navigate through.
The course will often consist of slaloms, 180 degree turns, 360 degree turns, figure-eight turns, and sometimes parking boxes. Gymkhana requires strong mental concentration and memorization of the track, as sections of the course frequently must be repeated or navigated backward.
