Though it can be a little hard to see the road ahead, this GoPro helmet cam footage of Ken Block shaking down the Monster Energy Ford Fiesta RS WRC ahead of Rally Germany is impressive. It gives you an idea of how explosively quick pro rally cars have gotten (again), and it shows you just how puckering driving a narrow country road at triple digit speeds can be.
Block finished 17th overall in Germany, but that just shows how competitive the WRC field is. While the Ford Fiesta RS WRC platform is competitive, its podium finishes have all been earned by Mikko Hirvonen, Jari-Matti Latvala or Mads Ostberg, drivers who don’t dabble in other ventures like running a sportswear company, filming videos or competing in X-Games events. It makes you wonder how Block could do if he gave his full attention to WRC competition.
