    Before going through the thread below:
    Note : The thread title has no real meaning. Its just fun or irony or anything you can call. Michael Schumacher fans dont feel offended or blast at me :) i am one of the biggest fan of Michael Schumacher itself.

    But everytime this guy comes in my mind and i see his driving skills i go mad. Literally mad.

    I feel he is the god of Accuracy - Master of Monster.
    Name : KEN BLOCK

    Watch the 3rd video especially.

    WOw amazing skills. Kinda feel a bit let down that he used Ford car. Why not try with FIAT?? ;)

    He is got very good timing and art of drifting his car. Also cant believe they have allowed them to shut down the city for this video. :wow

  3. Looks like Need For Speed prostreet was inspired by him, or was he inspired by the game?

    yeah this whole gymkhana series is just amazing man...
    But what is even better is the outtakes ..
    I think youtube has that as well.. Just goes to show what it means to compile a video like this..

    I'm also one of the biggest fans of M.S but i doubt if M.S can drive like this either ;-)

    I am a fan of Ken. I came to know about him through the DiRT game series. Have also watched a bit of him on TV and YouTube.

    No, NFS ProStreet was not inspired by him, the Gymkhana races in DiRT 3 were.

    Well the Ford is also an amazing handling car. Mainly the car he is driving is 650BHP which does 0-100 in 1.8 seconds :)

    He's definitely awesome. But, Actually he is not so perfect after all. These are not single take videos.

    I was watching the behind the screen video's of one of these videos and saw that he hit/missed quite a few corners/walls. I vaguely remember he talks about the tail lamp getting damaged and thus not showing up on the car in the next part of the video.

    Neverthless i still think he does awesome even if he is doing it in retakes. The way he drifts takes narrow gaps etc is something quite impossible for most of the drivers.
