Here's a favorite vid with Ken and Capt. Slow on Top Gear, with a special guest. Saw this when it first came out.

Same! I remember watching the first one when he was in the STI sedan and I was just mezmerized by his skill! I have watched all of his subsequent vids because of that first Gymkhana vid. Such a legend...such a massive loss

Very sad news indeed. Hopefully he went out on an adrenaline rush, which it seems was mostly what he sought and enjoyed. Innovative and Cool dude. RIP.

Shame but seemed to be enjoying life. Sure going to make an impact on his daughter Lia who he was helping break into youtube levels that he had.

Such a tragic loss...I grew up following Ken Block's career and was a bit obsessed with DC Shoe Co. back in the day. I still have one of his rally hoodies from when he was sponsored by Subaru, that thing has to be more than 15 years old now.

Terrible, feel for his family. Recently watched a couple videos on his YT channel. Rebuilding an Audi Ur-Quattro with his daughter.

This one hits hard - an absolute legend gone too soon. May he rest in peace & my condolences to his family, at least he got to go out doing something he loved.

I asked my wife if she remembers Ken Block, she asked if there was a new episode from his videos… I said he passed away. Hit us hard at dinner. A father who does what he loves with his daughter. Life is too short sometimes.
