Practice makes perfect, he has unlimited resources and time he better be the best. There's natural talent out there that only comes around once in a generation. Many of those have past unfortunately. Guys like Sennna make Ken block look like he's playin with hot wheels, oh wait he pretty much is lol.

The OG's had talent, new age has no fear.

Colin McRae rolled his car few years back in the X games and still took podium lol. He's a stunt car driver, not a race car driver which is what really counts in most peoples opinions. He's definitely over hyped. Does some crazy ass stuff for sure, but so does a lot of people with unlimited resources ;)

That's the filming part of it but to get everything organized I doubt it ;)
My guess is that there's a full production behind and getting city authorization alone must have been a pain.

Painfully true!

He's the second American to score points on the WRC stage. Second. Ever. The first happened some 20 years ago or so. As of now, he's the only american driver in the WRC. That's something.

He's placed in most of the X-games events he's driven in, usually third or better.

He's come in 3rd or better at most of the rally america championships that he's driven in.

There's alot of hate on Block for the talent he has, or "lack" of talent that alot of people seem to think he has. He skated, moto-crossed, and boarded, co-founded DC shoes, and now uses that money to do what he loves. Nothin wrong with that.

I've personally met the man, alongside drivers like Pastrana, Mirra, and L'Estage. He's just as nice of a person as any of them. Signed anything anybody brought up to him. Sat outside in the freezing ass weather, after driving 3 stages straight, just to talk to people.

In short (hahah), he's a cool guy, he can drive circles around any of us, and he's doin pretty damn good for himself at racing right now.

That's true, probably is a cool guy. I don't hate him, not that type of person. Not saying he doesn't do some pretty amazing stuff I just see him as a stuntman more than a race car driver.

Go Pro down at 3:36! :(

With as many of the "playground" things he's done, I honestly feel that the producers just chose the obstacles and objectives and tell him to go through them after just a few days of practice. Many of those stunts he has done before.

But to master each stunt, especially the "washing machine," I'm sure has taken years and years of practice.

However, to block off those streets in Cali, that alone would have taken 5 years to get pulled off.

Hotwheels?

I think you have a few good points. I mean sh!t, if I could get into WRC, I absolutely would. Would I be able to keep up with the others after years of training? I severely doubt it, but would I still race? You're damn straight I would!

I think it is hubbling to realize that we can drive circles around the average person, Ken Block can drive circles around us, and WRC pro's can drive circles around him. As good as we think we might be a touge, autox, etc, there's always a bigger fish.

I used to hate him until I made these realizations a few months ago. Dude's damn good at what he does, has fun at it, it makes for great marketing and pr for his company. These days, I'm jealous. :D

Only thing I hate is his semi hipster style lol. Other than that I thought the old Subie vids were awesome based off the sound or that cosworth alone. Rustles my jimmies just thinking bout it :p
