Ken Block to compete in at least 3 FIA World Rallycross Championship rounds
Ken Block today announced he will join the all-new FIA World Rallycross Championship presented by Monster Energy in a minimum of 3 rounds in 2014. He will drive a Ford Fiesta as part of the Hoonigan Racing Division.
He begins his World RX campaign in Hell, Norway on 14-15 June, and will compete in Loheac, France (6-7 September) and Istanbul, Turkey (11-12 October).
Martin Anayi, Managing Director of World RX for IMG Motorsport – a division of IMG said, “We’re absolutely delighted to have Ken Block and Hoonigan Racing on board for three rounds of this year’s FIA World Rallycross Championship,” “Block’s style epitomises World RX and his huge international following will help lift the profile of our championship to a younger and more digitally-savvy generation. He’s a hugely exciting personality to have onboard in 2014 and his spectacular driving style will make for fantastic crowd-pleasing entertainment.”
Ken Block said, “I’m stoked with how the new liveries for my Ford Fiestas have turned out, as well as the race schedule we’ve been able to put together for 2014. Once again I’ve been fortunate enough to put together a highly diverse schedule that has me going around the world… and, most interestingly, racing in three of the World Rallycross Championship rounds for the first time ever. I’m pretty sure nobody has a better job than me this year!”
