With the news that Ken Block is moving to Ford in an effort to tackle the WRC, there are also the naysayers who are determined that he can’t do anything more than showboat. While it is true that the talent pool is pretty deep in Euro rally, Block has shown that he can go pretty deep himself when he needs to. Of course the question is, can he perform at a world class level for extended periods?

That remains to be seen, but this summer he attacked the Concord Pond stage at the 2009 New England Forest Rally this summer and beat the standing stage record. A record that was set by him in 2008. The 3 camera angles give a pretty decent view of Block on full attack. Nice work.
