Famous drivers complete amazing driving stuntWed, 28 May 2014 00:00:00 -0700
A QUARTET of the world's most skilful drivers has stunned the car world with an incredible stunt on a pitch black racetrack edged by lights.
Internet driving sensation Ken Block joined racing drivers Mike Rockenfeller, Augusto Farfus and Adrian Zaugg to lay on a sensational four-car stunt relay called Blackout.
Within the four-stage indoor course, the drivers had to face a major obstacle in each: the Laser Tunnel, Laser Drift, Slalom and Laser Box. As part of the entertainment Ken Block also performed a synchronised jump in his Ford Fiesta ST RX43 over Mike Rockenfeller's Audi R8 V10.
It is the first in a series of 'Titanium Trials' to coincide with lubricant brand Castrol's launch of a new Edge engine oil featuring titanium technology.
After filming the Trial Ken Block said: “Blackout was unlike anything I’ve done before. It
was like being inside an actual video game.
“The course would keep appearing and then disappearing as I was driving and attempting to coordinate my segment with the other drivers. It definitely wasn’t an easy challenge.”
