Factual entertainment channel Insight TV has partnered with Monster Energy to produce a documentary on the motorsport event Gymkhana GRiD.

In this second joint production, Road to Gymkhana Grid will provide a behind-the-scenes look at world-class drift drivers as they compete in one of the world’s most complex drift courses in Johannesburg, South Africa.

Gymkhana competitions are timed and speed events in which drivers maneuver through a predetermined track, performing driving techniques around obstacles such as cones, tires and barrels.

The project will provide a background on each driver while exploring how they prepare, their motivations, and what it means to become a Gymkhana GRiD champion.

Featured in the film will be Gymkhana drivers Luke Woodham, Petter Solberg, Ken Block, Adam Elder, Nikolett Szanto and Dmitrij Sribnyj.

The film will launch in the first quarter of 2018 across Insight TV’s channels and streaming service Insight.tv.

“With millions of fans around the world, particularly on social media, this event is a huge draw for petrol heads and we’re delighted to bring unseen, behind-the-scenes footage in this no-holds barred reality documentary,” said Insight TV’s global content strategy manager Arun Maljaars. “If you’ve ever wondered what drift drivers get up to when they’re not driving and how they build themselves up to be among the best in the world, then wonder no more.”

The doc is the second collaboration between Insight and Monster, with the two organizations previously collaborating on Secrets of DarkFEST.
