The Drift Monster:
You know as time goes by I’m becoming a fan of these 4 bangers 650hp and it just turns the rear tires into toast watch!
Ken Block and his nasty 650 horsepower, 660 lb-ft of torque and zero-to-60 in 1.9-second capable all-wheel drive Ford Fiesta hopped on a plane and headed to France for the filming of the latest installment in one of the most viral video series ever created, Gymkhana.
Shot just south of Paris, France in Linas at l’Autodrome de Linas –Montlhéry, this 1.58 mile oval track, built-in 1924, features banks as steep as 51 degrees, which is more than double the standard incline of most NASCAR ovals. Chosen by Ken for this specific reason, the ramp-like banking proved to be a unique and exciting challenge. The driving physics for the stunts performed were totally unknown until Ken attempted the maneuvers during filming.
