If you had the power, money, and influence of Top Gear , what would you do with it? If you answered with "Hold a massive festival of speed on a tropical island, and make an F1 car race against a rally car," then you need to click play on this video.
The Top Gear Festival Barbados took place just a few days ago, and one of the main festivities was a race between Lewis Hamilton and Ken Block . Lewis was in his Mercedes AMG Petronas F1 car from last season and Block was in his Ford Fiesta GRC .
To make things even more entertaining an enjoyable, part of the track was a modified dirt circuit with jumps for Block.
You may think it will be an easy win for the F1 car, but from the moment the flag drops it becomes very clear this will not be an easy race for Lewis.
I won’t spoil who wins, but the race is great fun to watch. Click play and enjoy the ultimate level of "cocking about" that only Top Gear can provide.
