Ken Block may think that he owns the word “gymkhana”, though apparently he does have a number of trademark applications on the use of that word, and has sued former associate Josh Martelli over the matter. When Martelli scoffed at the suit saying that the term dates to the 1900s, Autoblog pointed out that while gymkhana is indeed an old word, its early use was for equestrian, not automotive, competitions. However, in looking at some vintage stereographs, I found this scan of a French glass plate that was inscribed with “Gymkhana Automobiles 1924”, so apparently the term wasn’t just applied to horses.
