Video: Ken Block does his thing up Pikes Peak

September 27, 2017

Ken Block is up to his usual antics again, drifting like a mad man in unusual locations. This time he’s taken his Ford Mustang up perhaps the most famous hill climb of them all; Pikes Peak.

This was probably one he’s been wanting to do for quite a well. Pikes Peak is home to a mega hill climb event that takes place every year, luring in some of the wildest racing creations from all around the world often with some big-name drivers behind the wheel.

Over the years we’ve seen World Rally Champion Ari Vatanen helm the crazy Peugeot 405 T16 rally car. We’ve also seen Porsche legend Walter Rohrl take the Audi S1 Quattro Group B rally car up the mountain. And more recently Sebastien Loeb in a custom Peugeot 208 T16 race car, which, incidentally, happened to take the title for that year.

Anyway. Back to Ken Block. This is another one of his short films that’s definitely worth watching. The all-wheel drive Mustang smokes all four tyres almost the entire way up the climb, getting nail-bitingly close to some of the monster cliff edges that fall straight from the sides of the road in some places. We won’t waste any more of your time reading about it. Check it out below.

His dream is to live next door to the Nurburgring in Germany.
