BMW does a Ken Block with Chinese vases | video

We are keen to know how many vases were broken in BMW's practice runs.

Ken Block uses traffic cones to stake out the arenas for his gymkhana choreography. BMW has tried to go one better in this video, using a circle and alley of Chinese vases to show off some stunt driving.

But we’re not convinced this is all real – or at least one take. About halfway through you can see the tacho revving high while the speedo is still quite low. And although all the vases appear to come through the ordeal unscathed, being no more than lightly brushed by the Beemer’s wake, we’d be keen to know how many were broken in practice runs.
