Saturday CarToon: Ken Block is one Focused Driver

I think my leg is burning

Published on Nov 7, 2012 by

After qualifying first, winning each of his heats and leading the first 5 laps at Global Rally Cross SEMA, Ken Block was forced to DNF due to a FIRE in his cockpit.

But before retiring Block drove the piss out of his Ford Fiesta HFHV despite the smoke, and flames. Why you ask… Cause, like any good Hoonigan, dude AIN'T CARE!!!

Ken fuego: Block keeps racing, despite interior fire

AutoWeek provides this reflection:

The multidisciplinary racer/impresario seemed remarkably unfazed by the whole experience, though he was clearly disappointed in the loss.

More impressively, he also seemed remarkably unfazed while it was happening, if this video put together by his crew at Hoonigan Industries is any indication.

Wonder if an on-board suppression system would have been helpful?
