If you’re a fan of Ken Block, the Gymkhana videos, or just like seeing a Ford Fiesta drive very, very sideways – you’re in luck. Block is back and he’s brought with him a cast of seasoned racing drivers to lay down some rubber in Castrol’s Blackout Trial.
The event sees Ken Block, Augusto Farfus (BMW DTM), Mike Rockenfeller (Audi DTM), and Adrian Zaugg (Lamborghini test driver) hooning the world’s greatest sports cars around a pitch-black night circuit, illuminated only by laser grids and beams of light. We were lucky enough to be on set for filming and we can assure you that it was the coolest thing on four wheels.
Ken can be seen in his 2014 Ford Fiesta ST RX43, with the BMW M4, Audi R8, and Lamborghini Aventador making appearances as well. Check out the video below for more driver highlights and action shots. The Blackout Trial makes its YouTube debut on May 27, 2014.
