Plus like 5 medals in X-games, multiple wins in rally America, 5 straight years of winning the rally in the 100 acre wood (which is a record), and multiple 2nd place finishes over all in rally America
Tyler Watkins Jan 21, 2011
Blocks beat finish in WRC is 9th and considering he's been racing for like 5 years and its his first year at what's the basically F1 of rally...he really ain't doin to bad..........
Patrick Schalk Jan 21, 2011
Ok. He has all those sponsors for nothing
Patrick Schalk Jan 20, 2011
Ken Block does just fine
Will Conover Jan 20, 2011
Ya but not as much and they win when they don't crash
Patrick Schalk Jan 20, 2011
Well every driver is gonna crash at one point of another. What do you expect when you have a little 600hp Fiesta and all that safety equipment in the world? Balls to the wall baby!
Will Conover Jan 20, 2011
@ Patrick he also has a talent of crashing
Anthony Surdo Jan 20, 2011
I wish Ken Block didn't leave Subaru for Ford. Ford makes really good rally cars but I just like the sti better
Patrick Schalk Jan 20, 2011
Yeah the dude has balls and isn't scared of anything. Mix that with his talent and he could do some awesome things aside from gymkhana. I'm still waiting for Ricky Bobby to move to rally stuff :)
Max Hartjes Jan 20, 2011
Andy you are right (and i think you spelled it well), but i think he hass the skills to grow.
Andy Rogers Jan 20, 2011
I also don't see Kimi Raikonen (most likely spelt that wrong) doing very well in WRC either. I doubt Ken Block will get very far in WRC, but again, at least he's over there representing the US
Andy Rogers Jan 20, 2011
It's a whole new learning curve for him. For example, I don't see Juan Pablo Montoya dominating NASCAR after his F1 career, 2 completely different styles of racing in completely different cars
Andy Rogers Jan 20, 2011
Ken Block is not used to WRC type rallying. He's used to the stunt type stuff. Put it this way, at least he's over there. How many other American drivers are competing in Euro stuff? Not many, Block is the only well known one I think
Will Conover Jan 19, 2011
It's Ken block that let's down ford other drivers always win with the ford
Patrick Schalk Jan 19, 2011
Actually the Ford team and the Raptor won Dakar this year so that's definitely a huge step. I like to see the US get into rally stuff. It's awesome.
Andy Rogers Jan 19, 2011
Not saying Group A and modern WRC aren't hard to do and exciting to watch. Just saying Group B and previous was better, harder, and more exciting
Andy Rogers Jan 19, 2011
And considering Ford has won the WRC more times than Mitsubishi and the same amount of times as Subaru, I'd say they're good to go. Its not like Subaru and Mitsubishi ever competed in the REAL rallying anyways, aka Group B and previous
Andy Rogers Jan 19, 2011
@Albert Yeah they should just stick to NASCAR, ALMS, LM, FIA GT3, SCCA, etc., etc.
Albert Einsteins Jan 19, 2011
I am really sorry but I think ford is a huge underdog when u compare it to the Japanese and the European rally teams .... I mean even the US rally team uses Subaru and not An American car
Will Conover Jan 19, 2011
It's like a normal rally stage plus a Segway. Any other rally driver couldve done it
Patrick Schalk Jan 19, 2011
Will hasn't seen it then
Kyle Bohne Jan 19, 2011
Bro gymkhana was sick and that lil ford fiesta sounds nasty!!!!! I wanna drive that thing around!!
Patrick Schalk Jan 19, 2011
Albert take a look at Ken Blocks Gymkhana 3 vid and you will change your mind
Bob Thebuilder Jan 19, 2011
They've been doing rally for a really long time! With the focus and the escort, I say they're pretty good at it too
Albert Einsteins Jan 19, 2011
ford rally?? Stick no nascar
Description: The car was initially previewed and unveiling in September at the 2010 Paris Motor Show, but in that unveiling the car was in blue and grey colors, and developed specifically for the show by Ford of E...

A fair few ignorant morons posting on here i see. Leave sport out of politics.
Andy Rogers Jan 23, 2011
Yep, pretty much. That's why the US will never win the World Cup because the 3rd world rigs it. My dad's best friend went to Brazil and a guy told him who's going to win the next few years. Brazil will again in a few years
Mike Hawk Jan 23, 2011
Damned if we do, and damned if we don't. That's America in a nutshell. And all the stuff in between gets ignored or tucked away in top secret classified data banks
Andy Rogers Jan 22, 2011
And it's not like the US gets to just be the spectator of a conflict. We're a main superpower, we don't get to sit anything out. If we do, WE will be blamed for not doing anything. But if we do something, then people say it's none of out business
Andy Rogers Jan 22, 2011
I personally have nothing against Arabs. One of my best friends is Arabic. But, well, put it this way, who are we (the US) at war with right now?
Andy Rogers Jan 22, 2011
@Ron I haven't said anything, but I agree with you. I am not in the military but as an avid watcher of the Military Channel, it has definitely given me even more respect for the military (if that was possible) and more hatred for our enemies
Ron Dotterer Jan 21, 2011
Sorry but I'm in the army and see what's really going on. When my brother is getting blown up in Iraq by the same Iraqi soldiers that are supposed to be on our side it makes you think. Also Ken blocks looks better.
Andy Rogers Jan 19, 2011
Beautiful cars might still be putting out by companies, and they'd have to give the public a minimum amount of road car versions too :) Only in my dreams
Andy Rogers Jan 19, 2011
I wonder what modern rally cars would be like if Group B rally cars didn't, well, kill people and was still here today. Doubt normal, everyday hatchbacks like the Fiesta and C4 would/would've been in it
Albert Einsteins Jan 19, 2011
I am pretty sure bin-laden has a rally car... I mean cmon he lives in a mountainous region the dude gotta have one hahaha....and I am writin in Christian by the way hahahaha... J/k
Will Conover Jan 19, 2011
Wow Ethan not too offensive
Will Conover Jan 19, 2011
Hey Albert how's about we run in some Christan LOL
Bob Thebuilder Jan 19, 2011
Oh my goodness that widebody kit is effing goregous!
Albert Einsteins Jan 19, 2011
I am a rally racing fan and recently the wonder of the Dakar rally was Naser Aletteyah from Qatar with the VW team
Albert Einsteins Jan 19, 2011
Muahahaha u obviously can't read English .... It's Abu-Dhabi a city u will wish to see bit u can't afford it trailer trash .... And they write Arabic not Muslim hahaha that's a religion.... Man we Americans r really falling off the ladder quicker
Will Conover Jan 19, 2011
It just looks like middle east handwrighting. It's stool English
Mike Hawk Jan 19, 2011
I just noticed what Tom wrote. Dude, these are the good guys. Know your disassociations, man. Bin Laden and al gayda are the guys that we wanna deep fry in bacon grease!
Mike Hawk Jan 19, 2011
Props to Block (and Solberg too). I wish SWRT was back in WRC.
Ron Dotterer Jan 19, 2011
Ken block's monster rally car looks better and doesn't have terrorist markings on it
Russell Kanharn Jan 19, 2011
That looks pretty nice
Andy Rogers Jan 19, 2011
Hmm... I think I liked the look of Focus better. And the RS200 over that ;)
