But it’s as an extreme freestyle driver that Block truly comes into his own. Known for his incredible donuts and breathtaking drifts, the Californian has become an internet sensation and amassed a following of millions.

INTRODUCING ADRIAN ZAUGG

As a test driver for Lamborghini, Adrian Zaugg (27) is constantly pushing the limits. Most at home behind the wheel of a supercar, you won’t find anyone more in sync with their vehicle. And when he’s not testing them, he’s racing them, as a competitor in the Super Trofero Series. Zaugg will take on Titanium Strong Blackout in a Lamborghini Aventador.

INTRODUCING MIKE ROCKENFELLER

German born Mike Rockenfeller (30) showed great promise from an early age. In 2005 he won the FIA GT championship and became the youngest ever driver to win the Le Mans 24 Hour race (GT2 class). Drafted by Audi in 2006, "Rocky" continued his winning streak in different series and topped his success with the overall victory at Le Mans (2010) and the DTM championship in 2013. Rockenfeller will take on Titanium Strong Blackout in an Audi R8.
