Ken Block is the latest driver to announce he will join the FIA World Rallycross Championship after he confirmed he will compete in at least three rounds this year. Block will drive a Ford Fiesta as part of the Hoonigan Racing Division. He will start his World RX campaign in Hell, Norway from 14-15 June, and will also compete in Loheac, France (6-7 September) and Istanbul, Turkey (11-12 October).
“We’re absolutely delighted to have Ken Block and Hoonigan Racing on board for three rounds of this year’s FIA World Rallycross Championship,” said Martin Anayi, Managing Director of World RX. “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 added: “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!”
