Here is a video of an internet sensation who goes by the name of Ken Block. As part of his Monster Energy Gymkhana World Tour, Ken Block visited Australia. The drifting star treated fans down under with his usual rubber smoking antics behind the wheel of the Monster Energy Ford Fiesta but to spice up things, he brought V8 Supercar Champion Jamie Whincup along.
If you follow the V8 Supercars series, you would be aware of this Holden driver who has won multiple world titles in the past. The venue of the event was Calder Park Raceway and challenge was a drag race between Block and Whincup in their extremely different machines. Block’s Fiesta is all-wheel drive rally car, while the Holden Commodore based V8 Supercar is a rear-wheel drive touring car with front-mounted supercharged V8 engine.
