Neymar set to take on rally ace Block in Footkhana challenge

Posted by PanamericanWorld on April 17, 2014

Neymar is used to taking on La Liga's best defenders but the Barcelona star is preparing to face an altogether different challenge in the shape of rally driver Ken Block. The Brazilian forward has teamed up with Block for Castrol Footkhana, a never-before-seen experiment pitting one of the world's best footballers against one of the world's best drivers.

Neymar will swap the lush turf of the Nou Camp for cold, hard tarmac to take on Block and his car with a team of world champion freestylers.

Neymar said: 'It has been amazing to work with Ken Block and the other freestylers, bringing our skills together in this Castrol experiment. 'I can’t wait for football fans to see our freestyle tricks in action as we go head-to-head against Ken and his car. I hope my fans will join my team for the premiere!'

Although Neymar and Block have already taken part in their unique battle, the result has not yet been revealed. Fans can choose which star to support online at castrol.com/footkhana, with an exclusive premier set to air on April 22.

Racing star Block added: 'I'm stoked to be partnered up with Castrol again this season. I'm also very excited to have this opportunity to work with Neymar Jr, as well as the freestyle guys on this film. 'All of them are as passionate about their sport as I am about mine, so to have all of us working together on this project has made for some great results.
