Not for sure about it being Hollywood. I think it's the real deal.

That guy's tire budget has to be outrageous.

I love the occasional road sign. At 2:25, there's one that says "Slow Down" and around 2:40, there is one that says "Speed Limit 5".

The whole thing actually reminds me of teaching my son to drive. Getting out of our driveway was a little like that...

I've been in the same rally racing events with Ken. He's the real deal.

In Bemidji in August he crashed his 08 STI in the second event he drove it in - six miles from the end of the event!

He owns DC shoes and rumor has it - he built a rally test track in his back yard.

Here are a couple of Pics of Ken Block's car in Bemidji.

The car was scraped after this accident. It was only used twice.

I'm impressed! I think everyone should have access to an abandoned airstrip.

I bet the guy on the Segway wet himself.
