Check out this video of Ken Block’s WRC spec Ford Fiesta. The Subaru will definitely be missed. But we can’t wait to see this sucker in action on the World Rally stage. We at Speedhunters wish Mr. Block the best of luck this season!
Update:- OK, time for some clarification. Comments are getting confusing and heated. Love the passion guys! The car shown is the car which will rally in the first part of the ‘Rally America’ Series, which does not cater for WRC or S2000 class. I believe this car will run in the ‘Open’ class. This is similar to Group A, to Rally America specifications and built by MSE.
This is not a S2000 spec Fiesta, a WRC Fiesta (have to wait until 2011 for that) or the Rallycross style MSE Fiesta from ESPN’s 2009 X-Games.
As people have pointed out from the video, Ken will also do a number of WRC Rallies in a M-Sport prepared Ford Focus WRC. Lastly, Ken plans to compete in X Games. I would assume they would run the MSE Rallycross style car for that – but I don’t think the car has been confirmed.
Hope this helps. -AndyB
