Gymkhana is like the Japanese version of Autocross, altought they still have a seperate Auto Cross, this is the easiet way to describe it. It usually consists of very technical courses, very tight, lots of turns, some courses you never get out of 1st gear. Like the other days, there were a few places that you ride redline until hitting the next cone but 99% of people stayed in 1st. (sounds slow but its realy not)
I was car # 102. I didn't do anything overly impressive but I atleast placed in the top 10 of my class, C class, a very large class of 30 cars.
Here are the pics..

here's my 1:17' run on video, I messed up a bit at the end but not too bad. Next run I did a 1:15.
You may need a codec to be able to view it but its available from microsoft or the intel site.

cool thanks man.
But can't manage to beat some of those Japanese guys, they are freakin GOOD! They go to all the Gymkhana events around, every weekend, man they are so freakin skilled. With my 1'15" run I couldn't get in the top 5 of my class of 30 cars, BUT the 5th place guy ran 1'14" so I think I had to be in the top 10 atleast. Course, taking the other classes into account there were so FAST times, the fastest of the day was 1'04" !!! But then second fastest was 1'09"
