When you’re a master drifter like Ken Block, you usually don’t make a whole lot of mistakes when you’re in a drift session. But every so often, the cat jumps out of the bag and you’re left with, at least in this case, smashed rear wheels.

For other drifters, that’s a cause for concern. For Ken Block, well, he "just ain’t care.”

Probably more telling is the way Block handled the crash to his beloved Ford Fiesta. There were no fumes of frustration or resigned exasperation; just a smile on the face knowing that things like this can and still happen, even to the best of ’em.

And to his credit, Block even made a pretty cool video out of his crash. Now that’s somebody who knows how to laugh at his boo-boos and still make a pretty cool video out of it.

Check out the video of Block’s mishap and the entertaining aftermath that followed.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More

I am sorry but I do not understand the message of the video. It seems dangerous to see some exploding of the wheel scene. If they just made a pretty cool video of the crash then they should learn from that mistake.
