Ken Block is a wildman. We’ve seen him streak around San Francisco, tear about this geometrically-impossible man-made course and tear up James May’s face. Last November, Ken Block in the Hoonigan Racing team car ended their season spectacularly when their car rolled in the forest. We now have that on-board video, and an explanation of what went wrong.
Turns out that Ken hit a tiny bump on the dirt track and rolled the entire car over several times at an eye-watering 152km/h.
That wasn’t going to stop Block, however. Even when the wheels had come off post-roll, Block restarted the car and attempted to get back into race. It wasn’t long before he realised what had gone on, however.
