Gymkhana Grid Poland Adventure

Gymkhana Grid Poland Adventure

Personal message

Carl van As (28) from Johannesburg is an amateur Racing driver with a fantastic opportunity!

As an amateur racing driver in South Africa, you are left to your own devices and funds to compete in any form of Motorsport.

Over the past 7 years, all available funds have gone into racing my Subaru STI which has been greatly successful and thrilling.

In May 2019 I managed to beat all odds and win the Gymkhana grid qualifying in South Africa which secured my spot to represent South Africa in Warsaw Poland in September 2019 at the Gymkhana Grid Finals. (

This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to race my self funded and built racecar in an international arena and against the best drivers in the world such as Ken Block and Peter Solberg.

This opportunity allows me to have my car shipped to Poland in June and travel with Monster energy to the event and drive my heart out!

In order to get the car ready for such an event, I'm looking to raise funds to be as competitive as i can be and get the car prepared in a very short time frame before it is shipped over.

Many partners have come on board to assist with the setup of the car and are parting with their years of knowledge to assist me in developing this car to perform its best.

The target date to raise the funds is the end of June 2019 in order for me to purchase and fit the required parts to the car before it is shipped to Poland in June.

Any funds gained after June will go into obtaining the remaining parts and fitting them when the car arrives in Poland.

The funds will be used to purchase the following parts in order to compete:
* Toyo r888r tires - R30 000
* Turbo replacement - R30 000
* Rear Diff replacement - R16 000
* Brake pads and Disks - R6000

The assistance I get will greatly help in achieving my goal in representing South Africa in the best possible way and achieving a life long dream of racing internationally and having the best time with friends and family doing so!
