Feature Flick: Italian Rally Driver Drifts Through Construction Sites


Luca Pedersoli may be the Italian equivalent to Ken Block. How so? The rally driver's new Drift War One video -- which, as the name suggests, showcases some insane drift action --has gone viral in his native country within 72 hours of its debut on YouTube.

Watch as Pedersoli kick up dirt and mud as he drifts and slides around mounds of concrete, rocks, and Caterpillar construction excavators that come inches from clipping Pedersoli’s Peugeot 206. There are no gorillas on Segways, but there is an attractive woman chasing Pedersoli on an ATV.

So which do you like better? Who do you think would win if Block and Pedersoli were to battle in a Drift War Two?

Pedersoli doesn't hold a candle to Block's work. Way more show than go. Drifting laps around a pile of gravel and heavy machinery while under mock attack is child's play compared to the way Block challenges himself and continually ups the ante through each of his videos. The girl is a pleasant distraction from the lack of creativity in this production. He's clearly a good driver but Block puts way more at risk to demonstrate his skills.
