And not so awesome. Great show/stunt driver, but when it comes to racing, he seems to be a bit crap.......

Yes Ben, Gaz, Craig & I went to the WRC in Coffs Harbour last year. Don't think he finished too many stages but put on a bit of a show here (after the Mini)

I think that's part of his problem. He doesn't finish too many stages.One can't argue the fact that he can handle a car, when he can have plenty of practice on a choreographed piece. Not so sure it translates to a real life situation.

heck, I thought you guys must be watrching the latest, only just glanced at the thread.

here you go..... serious air in SF


WARNING: all you mexicans . . . do NOT try this in Victoria St. or Flinders Rd. . . . . . .
(you'll see what I mean about 2:20 in)

ps/ I don't think he is TOO crap a driver, he IS a WRC driver, and in the X Games video above. the guy who beat him was Loeb.
"On July 1, 2012, Block took the Silver Medal for Rallycross at X Games XVIII behind Sébastien Loeb."

Will also add Sprinvale Road railway crossing at Nunawading to the list, but I think they've probably removed the fun by now. Hard to brake when in mid-air. :o

Lol, quite true.

This also looks like a computer game, but its just the x games (Bet it hurt a lot).

This is the key. Isn't he an ex motocross guy. The one's who practice everyday doing jumps in their backyards etc. So yes a set piece driver. Like the stunt drivers who can pirouette their cars into a parking spot. When it comes to real world, back road driving he is outclassed by most WRC/IRC drivers.

But as their is not much rallying in the US there is more money in the X-Games/Gymkhana type shows. Horse for courses!

He still can't drive when he doesn't have the opportunity to practice, practice practice beforehand.
