I don’t think I had an appreciation for how much work goes into building a rallycross car from the ground-up until I saw this clip on Ken Block’s new Ford Focus RS RX. Every little individual component has to be assembled, and it’s fascinating to watch it all come together.

It’s free to be an enthusiast, and cheap to be a rally enthusiast. I gave a brief overview before, but RallyCross is the least expensive way to get behind the wheel and channel your inner (insert your favorite rally driver here), and is well worth exploring on its own.

We’re used to seeing Ken Block enter whatever races he wants to because he’s Ken Block and he can, but for 2016, he’s trying something different: focusing on only one championship. He’s extending his partnership with Ford to tackle the World Rallycross season—and only the World Rallycross season.
