Professional rally driver Chris “ATKO” Atkinson will be joining Block as a teammate for the upcoming 2012 WRC Mexico.

“I’m stoked about returning to the WRC for Mexico this year,” said Atkinson. “It’s a race that I’ve taken second at previously, so I feel great about the roads there. Plus, I’m getting to team up with Ken [Block] and his Monster World Rally Team for the race, which is absolutely awesome. Between that and getting to drive the same-level car that just won Sweden a few weeks ago, I can’t wait. Mexico’s going to be great.”

While currently only a one-off situation, Atkinson’s teammate, Ken Block, is excited about having a partner for Mexico.

“ATKO’s an incredible driver and we’ve been friends for a few years now,” said Block. “Obviously, I’m thrilled that he’s going to be joining me in Mexico as a teammate and racing for MWRT. Mexico’s already one of my favorite races of the year and this is going to make it that much better.”

For the WRC Mexico, ATKO will be fully supported by MWRT with a livery that borrows elements from Block’s, as well as livery matching Alpinestars driving suits, DC Shoes driving shoes, special ATKO team t-shirts, plus PR support and being included in the team’s daily video updates that will be released under Ken Block’s Facebook fan page.
