Click above to watch the video after the jump

Ken Block and his Monster World Rally Team seem to really get it. If you're going to show us a seven minute infomercial, it's best to sell product and perform astonishing feats of drift at the same time. Block's annual drifting extravaganza has quickly become one of the few must-see videos on the Internets, with nearly 14 million viewers tuning in to absorb Gymkhana II.

And if you're worried that Block's switch from the Subaru WRX STI to the 2011 Ford Fiesta means that the breathtaking drift videos are dead, think again. The driftmaster is in tease mode for Gymkhana III, and the post-jump video gives an all-too-brief glimpse of what's to come later tonight. Hit the jump to watch the 24-second tease for yourself. The video tells us that Gymkhana III Ford Fiesta will be unveiled this evening at 8 p.m. PST at San Francisco's Taverna Avenue.

      Ken Block is a rally driver?
      • 4 Years Ago
      I just checked the WRC website and Ken Block has yet to score any points. One would think he would be out practicing.
        • 4 Years Ago
        Don't get me wrong, I am not bashing the guy. I think its great what KB s doing for the sport especially in the US where we tend to not think about world motor-sports (F1, WRC, MotoGP) and just go with NASCAR and so forth.

        I really hope he can do well in the future, but I would think they would be out working on car setups and so learning stages for the future races.

        I had the opportunity to be a race engineer for just a small US circuit competition and found my self short on time during the season, let alone to do any publicity stuff.

        You guys all do realize that KB is actually doing very well in the WRC, considering he has only raced two events. This past weekend in Turkey he was trading stage times with mid pack drivers like Henning Solberg. Or do you not really know anything about rally racing, and just expected him to beat Loeb out of the box?

        It's funny how Block's own countrymen seem to crap all over him, but the media is Europe has done nothing but praise his ability to get up to speed so quickly in the WRC.

        He crashed out of the only two events he ever entered. You have a strange metric of "doing well".
        • 4 Years Ago
        Exactly my thought... carefully scripted and heavily edited youtube stunts are all fun but when it comes to actual racing, Ken Block doesn't really cut it...
      • 4 Years Ago
      I want the Subaru back...
      • 4 Years Ago
      Going to be revealed on "4.20".

      Looks like Ken Block will be celebrating the holiday by smoking his tires instead.
      • 4 Years Ago
      Hey, this is my tip!! :o)

      Can't wait for the reveal tonight! Hopefully it's even sicker than 1 and 2! :o)

      Why all the hate for the Fiesta?


      .....or was being on Block's knob just because he was driving the subie not as fulfilling as you once thought?


      .....hmmmm.
        • 4 Years Ago
        Probably because the car does not exist in any form you can buy and never will. Call me when ford offers an AWD hatch again.
      • 4 Years Ago
      Boo Hoo. Listen to all the whiners.

      Can't wait to see this. The car sounds SICK.
        • 4 Years Ago
        Sounded like a lawnmower to me.
