EBC Brakes are pleased to congratulate 4x Gymkhana GRiD Champion Luke Woodham who competed in the series final at Carnival City, South Africa on Sunday 19th November 2017. Luke finished again in 1st place after another incredible season of racing.

Gymkhana Champion Luke Woodham has just won the series for the fourth time in a row! The final of the event took place at Carnival City in Johannesburg, South Africa on Sunday 19th November 2017 and is one of motorsport’s most unique events.
This incredibly talented 29 year old driver has progressed from working as a motorcycle mechanic to a professional drift racer in just a few years. Luke has risen from relative obscurity to scoring multiple titles in the Gymkhana GRiD European Gauntlet Series, as well as podiums in the British Drift Championship.
The Gymkhana GRiD is notoriously known for slaying tyres and breaking records. Not only is it the only series where factory prepared World Rallycross machinery, drift cars, supercars, and enthusiast tuned street vehicles share the track and paddock area, but over six years the Gymkhana GRiD has grown from hosting qualifiers in Europe and Scandinavia to competing with a lineup of FIA world Champions in South Africa and the Adriatic.
I’m on Cloud 9 right now, 4x Gymkhana Grid Champion! This weekend has been the toughest Gymkhana GRiD to date. It’s been a real team effort to get this one – everyone has worked so hard and I’m really grateful. Thank you for all your support!
