Ken Block to Slide for Ford in 2010 WRC

News, gossip and rumors--we sort it out for you here.

Feb 5, 2010

Epic news from the tail-sliding, dirt-pounding world of WRC-Ken Block is joining World Rally Championship ranks! Block will make the light-year leap from Rally America to the WRC. Will his surreal, to-the-limit car control brilliance translate to timed stages and varying terrain? We think so, and we also think this a big coup for the WRC and its North American viability. With 8-million views, we think a lot of viral video Americana will want to see gymkhana go that next step.

The bad news: Subaru pulled out of the WRC, so Block will not have his Crawford Performance Impreza under his right foot as he goes to battle. Rumors tap former Subaru driver Chris Atkinson as his sidekick as the two campaign a '09-spec Ford Focus WRC for the new Monster Energy Drink World Rally Team. The reported plan has the dynamic duo running a limited schedule in 2010 with a new car-most likely a Fiesta RS, and a full tilt effort for the 2011 season. This is big.
