Sipi is a fairy who hangs above us like a huge, ever-smiling, men’s fragrance-smelling umbrella. He can be called anytime, anywhere to lend a helping hand, and he’ll be there in an hour with one of his Transits for sure. A dangerously maniac car collector (the street in front of his house is full of his vehicles), a radio-control and model car freak, Sipos is a Swiss knife made of human flesh. Totalcar is just one job amongst his zillion occupations, but he endears it the most. Lives with a girlfriend and two dogs.

Ken Block’s latest offering is a face-off against football star Neymar, drifting a Fiesta in a motorsport/football mashup extravaganza sponsored by Castrol.

It looks like for us here at Totalcarmagazine springtime is forever becoming one with Ken Block. About a year ago the Californian daredevil kicked off the motorsport season by hooning in Budapest before getting the most out of our editor's rat Sierra on the track. Now Ken Block sees in the spring of 2014 by performing jaw-dropping manoeuvres of a whole different kind.

Trying to play football using a car is nothing new - even the Top Gear team had a go driving Toyota Aygos, before playing rugby with Kias). Ken Block does it differently, though, taking on football star Neymar Jr kicking the ball – the latter by foot, the former by car. Who wins? Find out for yourself!
