About this event…The April 8, 2022 event is a 3-day event (Friday through Sunday).

Who can participate?

Our event registration for this event is open to active military, Guard, reserve, Gold Star spouses, and/or veterans with a service-connected injury. The general public can register at the link below.

What is it?

Using a street-legal car Gymkhana/solo/autocross courses typically involve 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.
