It's easy to understand that whoever is on top of the game is going to receive a healthy dose of hate. Some dudes say Ken Block isn't all that talented behind the wheel. Some dudes are also plain dumb. Drifting fanboys might venture across the internet to find Block hooning like a madman in one of his five Gymkhana videos, or catch clips of him tearing up Rally America courses and competing—as the only American, mind you—in WRC. And you think he can't get sideways at the Irwindale Formula D Circuit? Think again.

In his Monster World Rally Team H.F.H.V Ford Fiesta, Ken Block doesn't have the ease of rear-wheel drive, but with horsepower and some nasty flicks, and a batshit entry speed (91mph) he pulls off a seamless, epic drift, across the whole course. You want to talk proximity? He smashed his beautiful Fifteen52 Tarmacs by getting just a little too close to the wall.

Watch and enjoy.
