    NOT Ken Block but ....

    still heres how die hard a rally team can be:

    video
    Determination... on Vimeo

    With less than a mile left in a stage of the Ralley de Serrians in France, the throttle cable in our hero's Renault finally gives up the ghost. Does he give up? No! Does the team try to push their way to the finish? Hell no! The driver tells his co-pilot to man the wheel while he hops into the engine bay, pulls the hood over himself and then manually controls the throttle cable bracket to a heroic finish. The picture above speaks for itself

    I love how the driver put on his safety harness while his co-driver hangs on under the hood.
