Spain return for Ken Block

Ken Block will make his WRC return in an M-Sport Ford Fiesta at RallyRACC Catalunya - Rally de España, four years after his last appearance on the mixed-surface rally.

The US stunt driving star will get his first taste of the latest generation WRC machinery at the Spanish event (25-28 October), competing under his own Hoonigan Racing Division banner.

Block will tackle the event as part of a mixed programme for 2018 which includes rounds of the USA rally championship in a Ford Escort Cosworth.

“It takes a huge amount of effort and training to race in the WRC,” said Block. “but I’ll be cramming that into a short period of testing beforehand. It’s not really enough time in the car to properly prepare for a WRC attack, but I’ll take what I can get!"

The 50-year-old has previous form in Spain with a ninth-place finish in a Ford Focus back in 2010 alongside co-driver Alex Gelsomino, who'll be in the navigator's seat once again in October.

Catalunya will be Block's 25th WRC start since he made his debut at the sport's top level in 2007. His best finish to date is seventh place at the 2013 edition of Rally Guanajuato Mexico. 

Block is known for his creative and outlandish car liveries and this year is no different, with his WRC Fiesta adorned in a white, black and silver lightning pattern.
