It didn’t take long for the American driver known for his gymkhana to baptize his new coach. In just 36 short hours, his shiny new Hyundai i20 WRC became a more than unlucky wreck…
Ken Block is obviously known and recognized for his exploits in his gymkhana videos. But the American is also passionate about rallying, a discipline in which he naturally shines given his excellent driving skills. Except when things don’t go as planned… During the first event of the American season, when he was in the lead less than 5 kilometers from the finish line, his Hyundai i20 WRC encountered a major problem…
From brand new to wreck…
Yes, this year, Ken Block is driving an i20 specially prepared for the discipline. We are talking about a car equipped with a small 1.6 liter, but which develops almost 400 hp sent to 4 wheels! Suffice to say that it works pretty well, except when it hits an animal crossing the road… At such a speed, the latter had no chance and seriously damaged the vehicle. The first place flies away and Ken finishes 2ea result ultimately not so bad considering the damage to his car.
And the rest of the family then?
Ok, Ken’s rally could have gone better, but what about the rest of the family? Because, yes, it’s not just dad who is competing, the whole family got into it this year! His wife Lucy unfortunately also had a technical problem and ended up 7e of its class, decidedly … As for their daughter Lia barely 15 years old, she finishes 5e of its category and 21e overall out of a total of 95 cars! Not bad for someone who doesn’t have a license yet!
