Thank you Captain Obvious.

It does not matter if Block is/becomes good in WRC, as his role is to bring rally interest to the US youth, in whatever form he is good at. Over the next 10-15yrs forms of rally will become much more popular in the US.

For a 42 yr old with no racing background to make his way late in life to the WRC, and run top ten times in a private outfit, is commendable.

The best rally driver in the world is Frenchman Sebastien Loeb but his Sunday winning won't every translate to Monday automotive sales in America...thus enter Ken Block & his YouTube gymkhana & hooning crazy antics.

I don't see how Ken Block's hooning is going to generate interest in rallying, unless their is some scheme afoot to reduce rallies to something similar.

Gymkhana may be very skilful and have attractions all its own to some people, but it lacks the most important ingredient of real rallying - speed!
