Doing everything from owning a multi-million dollar shoe company to starting an internet-famous video series, to racing an AWD Ford Fiesta in Rally, Rally Cross, and Gymkhana events, there's no doubt that Ken Block is a talented, successful, and persistent individual. However, when it comes to persistence in the middle of a heated US-based RallyCross race, how far should one go? Until something smells? Until there's sparks? Or until the entire cabin is on fire? Well, for Ken Block in the middle of a heated race, when he says that his Fiesta was ON FIRE - he means it, literally. Enjoy.

You need to a flashplayer enabled browser to view this YouTube video
The Toyota AE86 is to many just another car, and to the knowledgeable few - a truly competitive, soulful rear-wheel-drive machine. Today's Toyota GT86, Scion FR-S, and Subaru BRZ are all the successors of the mildly-known AE86, and rightfully so, because with the right driver, the AE86's potential was obvious and - like its 4-cyclinder engine - just screamed for attention. That potential was enough for the AE86 to hold its ground against countless cars in and out of its class - including an R34 Nissan Skyline. Don't believe us? Watch this short video from Japan's "Best Motoring International - Hot Version" show, and see what true handling can do. Enjoy.
