Will be interesting to see how his skills translate into the real world of rally.

And there are many much more skilled drivers/riders than him who aren't cocky s.o.b.'s. It doesn't have to go with the territory.

I've only met Ken once while I was working some rallies a number of years ago. I can't say anything about him personally but I'll stick my head out and say he his possibly the "best" US rallyist at this time. Yes, even better than Travis and simply based on how quickly he has developed in just a relatively few years in the sport.

I've never met him either, but I have talked to a few people who had a chance to. Typical comments were he was much less approachable than Travis is, seemed a bit arrogant and cocky, but whatever. I think they're both great drivers, don't get me wrong, but my comment wasn't directed at strictly US based drivers.

flat out, he is only out there for the spotlight. he is a great driver, but simply put is a huge dick. he won't pay ANY fan any piece of mind unless they are a driver or codriver in that event. from talking to some of the other drivers, they don't even like him! but as stated b4, he will get killed in WRC

Ken Block in the Ford ... that's awesome ...

Look forward to watching this year's rally.

Don't forget Travis wasn't doing rally until 4 or 5 years ago too. He's as new as Ken Block. He was a motocross guy. I disagree, and Block will get spanked by Norseman all day.
