Action star, YouTube celebrity, stunt driver, entrepreneur, company founder - K en Block has many job titles. It's all too easy to forget that he is actually a rally driver when you look at the performances with which the US boy has caused a sensation in recent years.
Now the 42-year-old daredevil wants back to its sporty roots and stir up the rally world. After his well-known Subaru Internet videos, the Californian has found a new strong partner in Ford. Thanks to his long-term sponsor 'Monster Energy Drink', Block doesn't have to worry about his budget for the time being.
New Ford in a spectacular design
Am On Tuesday, Block’s new racing team Monster World Rally Team published the first pictures of his new company car for the US appearances. The painter has come up with something special. The upper part of the rally fiesta is kept in the well-known monster black and green, which merges with clearly visible drops of paint into the white lower part of the car.
Due to the graffiti look, the design should exactly meet the taste of its young followers. His trademark, the skull block, was also painted on the roof in a clearly visible manner. In addition to the monster shower, the logos of Blocks Videogame (Dirt2) and his own skateboard shoe brand (DC Shoes) can be found on the car as sponsors.
No Ford Fiesta S2000
Incidentally, the Fiesta was not built according to the S2000 regulations, but rather designed by the Swedish rally company Olsbergs Racing according to the rules of the 'Rally America Open Class'. With the Fiesta Block wants to compete in the US rally championship and the X Games.
In the WRC, on the other hand, a Focus WRC is used as sports equipment. As the team already revealed, the paintwork of the Focus should be similar to that of the Fiesta. However, the Stobart logo must then also find its place. Block plans to compete in seven World Cup races for the British logistics company.
