Video: Block’s ice-cold Fiesta

Ken Block gets slidey in a 2011 WRC-spec Ford Fiesta. Oh God, not him again, etc

Yes, we know that - having done no more than read the title of this story - some of you are already aiming a bolus of virtual phlegm at our comments boxes, no doubt accusing us of being obsessed with Ken ‘Gymkhana' Block and his powersliding exploits.

You may have a point. But, just before you comment, take 147 seconds out of your day to watch this video, which shows Ford's Fiesta rally car - the one that will compete in the WRC proper in 2011 - sliding around a snow stage in Michigan.

Not because of Mr Block's indubitable driving skillz, but because it's a great chance to see - and hear - the future of WRC. It looks and sounds good, we think.

Right, you've heard us out and watched the video. Now feel free to dole out the Block-love abuse...

Now share it...
