Ken Block Highlights video

Posted by Tom Ford at 11:52 am on Sunday March 22, 2009

Giving airtime to the criminally brilliant petrolheads among us is what we love to do, so here’s a little bit of a Ken Block fix for all of you who loved his ‘gymkhana practice’ from a few months back. You can see more of Ken’s peculiar brand of in-car lunacy at kenblockracing.com, but here’s just a few of the visual headlines set to music. 

As ever we have our favourite Block videoism (“I was not scared, because if I was scared, it would suck” – from the 171-foot Scoob jump), but this time not from Block himself, but from is co-driver Alex Gelsomino. It’s at 20-seconds. “At least she landed on the wheels, y’know?” Class. Pure class.

    Ken Block is such a badass. He just needs to work on his aggression or whatever in order to cut back on so many crashes, heh.

    I say as the americans: Oh mah Ghad!
    Viper, youre wrong. This one is so much more fun than all the others put together, it doesn’t really matter if he wins. Motorsport is showbiss. This is very good showbiss.
    And what a scooby, anybody else who think it is over-engineered?

    And @Ivar scooby is supposed to be overengineered.
    Its a truly ugly looking car but its whole appeal comes from its technical engineering! Its a car not to cruise around in Monaco in. Its a car to go completely bonkers in!! Something that appeals to that inner primitive animal in us!

    take him to WRC, will see what he can, when the place is too narrow to drift

    He seems to have come from the same school as the late and great McRae did! Lots of sideways, crashes a fair amount of the time, looks fast too..except he isn’t as fast as Colin.

    Props to Block

    The name Ken Block is synonymous with mad stunts, big air and crazy drifts and that’s what it’s all about for him. He’s never going to bear Loeb in the rallying stakes but he’s a legend of a different kind.

    here’s an idea….

    top gear track….
    Block versus The Stig around the track in the same scooby.
    Stiggy knows the track inside out, Block knows that scooby inside out…. lets see what that comes to.
