Cycling Chair Gymkhana?!


Gymkhana is a type of motorsport, known as Motorkhana in Australia and New Zealand and as Autotesting in the United Kingdom and Ireland. Similar to autocross, the goal of gymkhana is to achieve the fastest time possible; memorizing the course is a significant part of achieving a fast time. The name is loaned from the equestrian discipline of gymkhana.

Gymkhana events are time and/or speed events in an automobile. These can feature obstacles such as cones, tires, and barrels. The driver must manoeuver through a predetermined "track" performing many different driving techniques. What separates gymkhana from traditional autocross events is that the gymkhana requires drivers to perform reversals, 180 degree spins, 360 degree spins, parking boxes, figure 8s, and other advanced skills. Drifting is also encouraged where helpful or necessary. Essentially, a gymkhana is any event featuring a starting point, a finish line and some sort of "obstacle" to get through, around, or by, all within a certain time limit.

Let’s not call this game “slalom”.

Let’s call this game “Gymkhana” because it sounds cooler.

Let’s not call this game “Motorkhana” nor “Autotesting”.

Let’s call this “Gymkhana” because cycling chair is not quite “motor” nor “Auto”.


Manoeuvrability will be the key. We may want to use numbers etc to challenge the riders’ cognitive abilities. Parallel parking technique will be interesting to showcase.



Look forward to us showing off photos/videos of our Southern Hemisphere version of cycling chair Gymkhana.
