KEN BLOCK CHASING HIS 6TH VICTORY AT RALLY IN THE 100 ACRE WOOD...
February 23rd, Salem, Missouri: Monster World Rally Team is pleased to announce Ken Block’s return to Rally America’s Rally in the 100 Acre Wood as he competes for his 6th consecutive win at the event.
“I’m very excited to be back at 100 Acre Wood this weekend,” said Block. “I love this rally—the roads here have great flow and are very fast, so they suit my driving style perfectly. Also, I’ve managed to win here the past five times I’ve entered, so I’m also out here going for my 6th consecutive win. We just wrapped up a solid test on Monday and Tuesday here in Missouri, and while it was the first time we’ve really run my H.F.H.V. Ford Fiesta in it’s stage-rally setup, we’ve got the car in a great place setup-wise. I’m feeling confident in my chances of doing well here this weekend.”
While Block’s entry marks his return to North American stage rally racing, due to a highly diverse schedule—that includes competing in the full Global RallyCross Championship—he won’t be campaigning the full Rally America season this year, instead entering in two events: Rally in the 100 Acre Wood and Olympus Rally.
