Ken Block’s debut season as a rally driver was in 2005. He made an immediate impression with his car management, and shortly thereafter, in 2006, he was named the Rally America Championship’s Rookie of the Year. Block began his racing career and has since raced in five medal events at the Global X Games. At the age of 18, he received his first two X Games medals for series victories. Since then, Block has won silver at Barcelona RallyCross in the Global X Games 2013.
Block’s Block Motorsports YouTube channel, which features 9 videos and 11 related edits with more than 500 million views, has helped him win a lot of honors. He became the most well-known racing celebrity worldwide and one of the most well-known racing franchises thanks to the channel. The Block franchise also won a Gold Pencil Award for its advertising campaign from One Show Interactive. The category for single-form internet films and videos was won by Block. The Block Franchise has won many prizes as a result of its popular videos, including making Ad Age’s top 10 lists. Over 500 million people have seen their films, which have assisted in exposing Block to a wide global audience. Block’s films have also won other honors, such as the One Show Interactive Gold Pencil Award for Outstanding Advertising Campaign. They also received the One Show Pencil Award for excellent excellence in the Online Films & Video/Long Form – Single category.
Only four Americans have ever accrued points in the World Rally Championship, and Block is one of them. In January 2010, he accomplished this accomplishment by becoming one of just four individuals on the moon to secure employment. Domestic racing in Rally America, the Global RallyCross Championship, and the X Games were all a part of Block’s Ford campaign. By joining the Monster World Rally Team, which has Ford as a sponsor, he also pursued his aim of competing in the World Rally Championship. Block consented to use motorsports to promote Ford’s marketing initiatives as part of the agreement. Since then, he has renamed his racing team Hoonigan Racing Division and has kept up his motorsports marketing for Ford. During the three years he participated, Block placed second in the Global Rallycross Championship standings each time. In 2016, he switched to competing in the FIA World Rallycross Championship full-time, and he did so every year until 2017.
Throughout the year, he intends to take part in numerous rally and rallycross competitions. He’ll also film numerous films and compete in the Gymkhana GRID final this September.
