Block commits to World Rallycross
American Gymkhana, rally and rallycross star Ken Block will compete in the full FIA World Rallycross Championship this season.
The Youtube sensation’s programme is being backed by Ford Performance, while his M-sport Ford Fiesta will be run by his own team, Hoonigan Racing.
“I’m stoked to be able to compete for an FIA World Rallycross title,” said Block. “I’ve really enjoyed my past six years racing with Ford and to renew my relationship with them moving forward, as well as receiving an increased level of involvement from Ford Performance to compete for WRX, I couldn’t be happier.”
Block has twice competed in World RX. He made the podium in Norway on his debut in 2014, and also made the final at Loheac in France the same year.
