My guys said the s*** hit the fan when the good folks who control the property saw this video. You're supposed to stay on the runways and not drive around, much less through, the buildings.

Although the last name may be spelled slightly differently, I'm wondering if Ken Block is related to a U.S. rally driver of the Seventies named Henrik Block (or maybe Blok), whose car we tested back then.

As for rally sport, or rallying, or drifting, which is a spinoff of same (no pun intended), it's harder than it looks. Over the years I have enjoyed rides in rally cars driven by some serious shoes and it definitely gets your attention, especially going through forests (them trees is mighty big and they don't move). I also got a ride to the halfway point up Pikes Peak by a seeded rally driver in a Ford--on a normal, open to the public day. We didn't go 10-10ths, but we did pass a few family cars on the way up. When we got back to the bottom of the hill, no less than the head of the Colorado Dept of Highways was waiting for us, madder (and redder) than ****. He wanted to haul the driver, a Brit, whose name escapes me, off to jail, but the Pirelli U.S. PR guy, Jack Gerkin, talked him out of it.

Lots of fun!

I'll send that link to my gearhead colleague.

He thinks nothing good has been made since 1970 and is NOT impressed with the Japanese :D

Looks like they need to use for the next James Bond movie. Very cool. Bet he could do it just as well in snow. Even out in AZ. Later RJD

Stan,
Not from me...
I take a relaxed apex into the driveway, and brake well before the entry curb, as not to unload the suspension too much before entering the garage...
Keeps the dents in the drywall to a minimum. :)
Besides that, I gotta buy my own tires...;)
