Ken Block and Vaughn Gitten JR. Drifting Together at SEMA 2010

How’s this for irony: during the SEMA Show, Ken Block and Vaughn Gitten Jr. were paid, probably large sums of money, to put on a drifting exhibition in the parking lot of the Las Vegas Convention Center. A week earlier or a week later, and both of these guys would have been slapped with a book full of tickets, including reckless driving and exhibition of speed. Whether it’s drifting or pro rally or gymkhana, you really need to have an exquisite sense of timing.

Ken Block may have been faster in his rally-prepped Fiesta, but Vaughn Gitten Jr. definitely looked like he was having more fun. I only wish the video were a bit longer, since I could watch these guys go at it until their tires exploded. There was probably enough tire smoke generated during the filming of this video to raise the temperature of the planet another degree or so. I sure hope these guys have enough carbon credits to offset that.
