Ken Block explains his Rally America championship ending crash at LSPR 2013

See how and why Ken Block and Alex Gelsomino's Rally America title chase came to an abrupt, and brutal, end back in October at their final event, the Lake Superior Performance Rally. Due to two simple letters ("in") missing in his pace notes on one of the final stages of the event, Block and Gelsomino ended up cart wheeling down one of the final stages of the season, end over end, before coming to a stop against a tree. The missing "in" allowed Block to go slightly wide around a very safe looking corner where his rear wheel went into the weeds and got caught up on a small clump of dirt, sending the Ford Fiesta HFHV into the air. While the crash was violent, the pair were fortunate to walk away from the championship-ending incident with minimal injury.
