It was way back in 2008 that the Internet first got wind of a driver named Ken Block and his rather natty skills at being an absolute and utter motoring hooligan. Give this man an airfield, and he’d leave you with the smoking carcasses of many, many tyres.

His most recent escapade was of course, ferrying TG TV’s Matt LeBlanc around London in his 845bhp, modified ‘Hoonicorn’ Mustang - a fine demonstration of just why Mr Block has wormed his way into TG’s heart. The levels of sheer hoonery he manages to achieve in his modified ‘Stang beggars belief.
