TopGear.com: Hi Ken! How are you?
Ken Block: I'm doing great, thanks.
TG: You're gearing up for the X Games in Austin. How's it all shaping up?
KB: I'm actually feeling really confident. Texas tends to have more dirt than usual X Games events, which makes it better for me because I come from rally. There are 20 competitors for this event too, so it should be very interesting. I'm working towards my first gold in an X Games event with every fibre in my body. That's the goal.
TG: You're running on part of the Formula One track. Tempted to leave a set of smoky 11s for people like Hamilton to pick up when they arrive later on in the year?
KB: [laughs] Yeah, I might just do that.
