When we hear the words ‘reckless driving’ I’m sure the first thing that comes to mind is hitting 35mph in a 30 zone or something along those lines, correct?
Well, for 48 year-old professional rally driver, Ken Block, hitting 35mph in a 30 zone is really no biggie. Driving itself is hard enough to get your head around, never mind every other external factor surrounding it. So when you’ve got the ability to nail handbrake turns and drifts at speeds of 100mph, then you know you’ve got some talent. Now for Ken Block, he doesn’t only have some talent, he has plenty of it.
With his custom 2012 Ford Fiesta HFHV that can hit 60mph in 1.8 seconds, Block can hit insanely fast speeds and perform handbrake turns to perfection missing obstacles by less than an inch—leaving everyone watching on the edge of their seats.
Ken’s ‘Gymkhana’ episodes consist of him visiting different places around the world such as Los Angeles and Dubai, showcasing his nail-biting driving ability. Which has become a real hit on YouTube, reaching millions of views.
So guys, what do you think? Would you be haard enough?
