Well it seems like that Ken Block is out of the rally even before it started! And in a spectacular way!

Yesterday during the shakedown wich was right behind where I work this hapened:

    That's 'cos it's a rally and not playtime in his own back yard.

    Don't get me wrong I'd kill for car handling skills like his, but he's got a long way to go to be at WRC driver level.

    its not thats the whole point its all his car control and many many many takes, thats why there are so many skid marks around the track

    i agree hes not at wrc level, but hes won rally america and the american chamionships numerous times, so might aswell.
    plus as he owns DCs its hardly a problem of money.

  • He may not be the best Rally driver in the world, but he does consistantly crash well.

    there are so many skid marks
  • Maybe he can concentrate on that game he's releasing in a couple of months ;-)

    He crashes allot that's for sure, his co-driver must love him, he won't have to make notes for more than 4 bends.

    Ford must really love him too. Monster having to buy all those replacement shells!

    Or may be his co-driver is really bad.. 'oh sorry ken, forgot to mention that corner'

    Maybe his co-driver is James May: Hard left, no no, I mean right.
    Anyway, he drives Fords, they're scrap before the race and the're scrap after to.
