ST Focus I question how many times times he does it.

I always guessed he did a practice run and then a money run based on past videos and skid marks.

Damage to his vehicle seems to follow from shot to shot in his videos, making me think they use a test car and final run car.

I know the cars are like $250,000.

cyfocus01 Jealous of the driving skills. jealous of the car. jealous he got to do that.

yes, many, many takes. i was wondering how many times he hit a cable car. notice the MULTIPLE donuts rings? but still sweet to watch. superb editing also.

fast_ryda Oh how many times I've wanted to drift that Hwy off ramp...not gonna lie but it puts in perspective for me on how big his run was. I have driven 95% of the roads that this was filmed on. Best part is that they had to wait for the New Bay Bridge construction crew to shut the bridge down for real reasons and then film it.

Id rather see a factory package though, as a stand alone limited run special edition would probably get slapped with a $10k dealer markup just because its "Ken Blocks" car.

Oh and Kens not doing to bad in American Rally-X. He's won several medals in Rally America as well as the Xgames, he got second place in this summers 2012 XGames.
This ^ Nice vid!

ST Focus Another well done video of skilled driving.

They need Ken Block to do some real driving in movies, like Bond and other action movies.

He knows he isn't going to be competing for the championship anytime soon. He said it himself, he's got a long way to go before he even thinks about getting the championship. I don't get why everyone holds him to a higher standard just because he's the first American to race in WRC.

How 'bout that flip, ehe?! There's slow-mo of that; dude even flips like a boss!



dudes.... WTF.... ? (in "The Dictator" style ;)


read with understanding, and NOT understand what you want to make of it,


My post wasn't about how he is doing in WRC, take it to some english teacher, and he/she will explain, and will tell you in more or less greater detail that my post was about the video not being a "recording of a drive through SF" but a prepared video production that took many attempts on each stage to make it look good, and while pointing out clearly that i do recognize very good skill of mr Block, I still think many WRC drivers have better skill, but they just don't do the type of promotional stunts.....


MKAYYYYY ?



For me all this youtube rant about how he is doing in WRC is funny, and I make nothing of it.
