The latest couple of videos to come from the brand chief at DC Shoes may have been a tiny bit humourous and showed off some dirty bits, but they have been short on the type of excitement that has made Ken Block a household name in households that don't particularly care about motorsports. Today's release brings the Focus back onto hooning the Fiesta.
The 100 Acre Wood might be home to a certain honey sucking bear in the nursery, in the performance rally world it is the kingdom of a Californian named Ken Block. The new media world goes crazy each time Block releases a new edition of his viral Gymkhana series, but there is a more serious side to his driving. Block has won the event in the foothills of the Ozarks 5 out of the past 6 years. That missing year was 2011, when Canadians Antoine L'Estage and Nathalie Richard stole the crown from the Ford driver and his co-driver Alex Gelsomino.
There is no doubt that Block wants to steal the crown back from the Mitsubishi team, as the video of him practicing at the nearby Sayers Brook Bison Ranch after the jump will attest.
