Screaming engines, smoking tires, and sublime high-speed driving greeted the crows as Monster Energy brought ace driver Ken Block and his wild, turbocharged Ford Fiesta to Nagoya, Japan to showcasing his awesome driving skill and drifting adroitness.


Making matters even more visually exciting was the presence of one of the Philippines’ hottest celebrity and Monster Energy brand ambassador, Ellen Adarna, who not only marveled at the incredible driving of the finest Japanese drift racers, she even rode shotgun with Ken Block himself as he gave her a first-hand experience in riding a 600-horsepower all-wheel-drive Ford Fiesta virtually sideways throughout the race course.

FHM Magazine’s 8th Sexiest Woman in the World was a picture of composure as she got out of the passenger seat—all smiles but giddy with Monster excitement. She, like the thousands of Japanese fans in attendance at the Nagoya leg of the D1 Drift Grand Prix, had a taste—literal and otherwise—of true Monster Energy excitement.
