Dirt 3 gymkhana mode trailer t.jpg

Gymkhana is a game mode debuted in DiRT 3, and renamed as "Hoonigan" in DiRT Showdown. Instead of racing against other cars or the clock, points are awarded by judges for driving manouvres successfully pulled off. The courses are named as 'freestyle arenas' by the game's packaging.

There is also no time limit. It is divided into three unlockable sections; the Parking Lot, the Depot, and the Power Station.

Tricks[edit | edit source]

Spin Zones[edit | edit source]

Square areas usually marked out by four purple, knockdown-able posts. Drive up to them as if going into a drift, but pull the handbrake, turn and hold the steering in one direction, and keep your foot floored.

Smash Blocks[edit | edit source]

The simplest trick to pull off: just drive through the polystyrene blocks to get points.

Jumps[edit | edit source]

Small ramps underneath the large, blue/black inflatables. Jump as far as you can to get the most points.

Drift Gates[edit | edit source]

Go as fast and as sideways as possible through the large, yellow/black inflatables to get the most points. It is possible to drift through two ways: trail-braking (turning into the corner whilst braking), and handbraking (turning and pulling the handbrake).

Donuts[edit | edit source]

Spin around the green posts/obstacles as fast and as sideways as possible. Keep the pedal to the metal and steer in the direction you want to go.
