Video: Block and load

Our quest for increasingly tortuous Ken Block-related headlines continues with this excellent rally clip

As we reported a couple of weeks ago, Gymkhana hero Ken Block will race for Ford in the WRC next year.

This is good news... unless you're James May, who is currently refusing to answer his phone in case Mr Block is on the look-out for a co-driver.

If you're wondering how he'll will fare against the likes of Sebastien ‘Driving God' Loeb, Mikko Hirvonen and Jari-Matti Latvala, take a look at this clip of the Blockster in action, breaking his own stage record at the New England Forest Rally in his Impreza STI.

It is, as the Welsh say, proper tidy. We love the quad headlights peeking out above the bonnet, too.

So, on the basis of this evidence, do you think Block is quick enough to challenge Super Seb in the WRC? Thoughts please. And roll on 2010...  

Now share it...
