It's the WRC results you need to look at rather than something he's more adept at.

He managed to break into the top 10 on his outings this year,but is always a long way back timewise.

This stuff keeps Block in pocket money.

He's very good at this stuff,but not so good at rallying.

I've always had the same opinion. I also think that any of the rally drivers could do this kind of stuff, they all have superb car control but a lot of them are just far better all round drivers than Block.

These videos are great fun to watch, he's a total hooligan, although a talented hooligan I have to say. I would love to know the logistics of filming something like this, shutting down a part of San Francisco can't be easy or cheap.

You can also see where he's probably practised before or had previous attempts and failed as you can see the tyre marks.

True.....the whole thing is carefully staged and choreographed,(as are the others)but it adds up to entertainment,and a good ad for both Monster,and Block's DCShoes company.

Just don't get him confused with a top level WRC driver though!
