Ken Block has had his first taste of a V8 Supercar today, driving Will Davison’s Trading Post Ford Performance Racing Falcon FG.

The gymkhana and World Rally star sampled the V8 at Calder Park ahead of his Gymkhana World Tour in Melbourne this Saturday.

Factory Ford V8 drivers Davison and Mark Winterbottom also had an opportunity to drive Block’s world-famous Ford Fiesta.

Davison said that he enjoyed today’s experience.

“Had the best day today with Ken Block,” Davison told his Twitter followers.

“Did a car swap with him – and his Gymkhana Fiesta is so sweet! Serious weapon. He loved the #6 Falcon.”

Winterbottom said on his Twitter account that driving the Fiesta was “awesome.”

“Got to drive Ken Block’s ‘motorman’ car today,” Winterbottom tweeted.

“Awesome bit of gear. 0-100km in two seconds!”

Block, Davison, Winterbottom and a host of local stars will be at Calder this weekend for a massive Monster Energy Drinks exhibition at the outer-Melbourne circuit.
