2009 Rally Defi - Ken Block Crash In-Car
Ken Block and Alex Gelsomino entered the Rallye Defi with an unusual car - a Ford Escort MkII. The car was meticulously prepared for Block and was to get it's first rally here.
Unfortunately, the pair ended their event early when their Escort locked a wheel, sending them into a ditch. Damage to the car initially appeared minor, but the two were unable to restart the car on the stage.
After repairs in service, the two were allowed to run the final three stages before being excluded from the event. Unfortunately, damage was more severe than originally expected, and the team returned from the transit, unable to continue.
When the car loaded up heading around a tarmac corner on the first stage, one of the wheels locked up after compressing up against the body, said Block. The car darted off to the left and into the ditch. We got it back out, but we'd broken a ground to the fuel pump, so we couldn't get it restarted.
The crew got the ground fixed in service, but we'd also shifted the transmission crossmember, which pulled the tranny back about an eighth of an inch, and we'd broken a bolt in the suspension. When we left to transit out to the next stages, the handling was all over the place, and the shifting wasn't good, so we decided to park it.

The sequel to the Icon original video: Motorcycle vs. Car Drift Battle - Nick 'Apex' Brocha is back and this time he brought his Empire teammate, Ernie Vigil. The two are mounted on a pair of crackling Triumph Speed Triples - built by Roaring Toyz for the sole purpose of going sideways. Over the last year their quest to find the ultimate drifting playground has led them to the rolling hills of High Plains County. Low traffic, perfect asphalt and endless twisties have kept them busy resurfacing roads with their rear tires for weeks. The only problem is the local authorities have had enough. Enter Police Officer Dan Brockett, the only man with the muscle to keep these two in sight. His 550 horsepower Ford Mustang Cobra was built for speed and he's got a license to use it...

Mad Cow Subaru Gymkhana rally drift racing Ken Block tribute
Our tribute to the Ken Block Gymkhana Practice video. Be sure to check that video out, it's amazing. A 1990 Subaru Legacy wagon with over 200,000 miles was used for all stunts. Be sure to rate and comment on how you think we did with our version of their video. My car cost less than one set of tires he uses in his video. All slides are under power, the e-brake doesn't work.
