On the surface, off-road racing and the rally racing have plenty in common. Both take place on unpaved roads, both use vehicles that are either modified or built for racing and forgo expensive supercars, both are as intense as racing can get.
In practice, however, things are much different. That is why The Hoonigans, the same YouTube channel responsible for the Gymkhana videos, have gotten Ken Block and BJ Baldwin together for the unforgettable race. Of the two, BJ Baldwin is the one most experienced with off-road racing and all of the unexpected bumps that occur when competing where nature doesn’t intend man to set foot.
On the other hand, Ken Block is the rally mastermind capable of navigating his vehicle around obstacles with millimetric precision, but is that enough to win?
Previously BJ Baldwin and Ken Block competed using Maverick X3 off-road vehicles, the competition that Block lost. Like a regular off-road vehicle, the X3 has the function that allows drivers to select the two-wheel or all-wheel drive.
The first two races are done in the two-wheel drive mode, much to the delight off BJ Baldwin, who is used to these things. Afterward, the all-wheel drive comes on, allowing Ken Block to reside in his comfort zone.
