Correct. While Block is clearly an extremely talented driver, he has performed poorly in all of the WRC events that he's competed in.I don't really understand the whole drifting and WRC world, but from what I can tell, he's pretty much a non-entity in that world correct?
So, while I'm impressed with the trickery, I can't help but think that he's like the Harlem Globetrotters.
"Despite the, even in my opinion, incredibly d-bag look he seems to emanate- he is an incredibly nice, approachable guy in real life and is in it for the fun of it."
Hmmm...Schumi, I would have to disagree. At a Rally America event he flat out denied my request for an autograph. There I was, silver permanent marker in hand no more then 5 feet away, smiling with small amount of being starstruck:
"Hey Ken, how about an autograph?"
5 second pause
"Nah, I've gotta get back in the car"
at which point he talked to his crew chief for 10 minutes and then went into his RV for lunch.
But I am still a fan of his skills and a tad jealous of the ability to shut down a city for the fun of it.
