Really Autosport, seems a bit cheeky to have Ken Block's San Francisco video in your subscriber section, when it's a sponsored item intended to be a free of charge, widely available on the web. For example, here: http://www.youtube.c...uDN2bCIyus#t=0s

And that Youtube link gives you Davis Evans’s detailed backstory, too? If so I gotta buy a new computer, cos my Youtube link does not.

That’s a bit like saying Autosport Premium should not provide detail on the BGP cos you could see it for free on BBC...

Hi Talisker,

You're right that the video is widely available for free, and we certainly didn't mean to suggest to anyone that you need to be an Autosport subscriber to watch it. The content in our subscriber section is David Evans's article about the Gymkhana video and includes an embedded version of the YouTube video of Gymkhana 5 so that any readers who haven't yet seen it can watch it before reading the article.

Cool, thanks for replying. I stand corrected!
