Ken Block to race for Ford in WRC and the X Games

Ken Block has signed with Ford to compete in the World Rally Championship, the Rally America and X Games.

Block will drive a Focus in the WRC and a Fiesta in the Rally America and at the X Games.

"I am stoked to be rallying in a Ford. They are an impressive force in the sport," said Block, who has become famous recently for his online 'drifting' Gymkhana videos.

"From the days of the 1970s Escorts to the Group B RS200 to the modern-day Focus and now the Fiesta, Ford just does an excellent job at rally and I couldn't be happier to now be part of this amazing heritage," he said.
