Gymkhana star Ken Block is the latest driver to join the all-new FIA World Rallycross Championship, which is scheduled to commence in early May in Portugal.
Block won’t be joining the series from the beginning, but the FIA says he will compete in a minimum of three rounds - in Norway (June 15-16), France (September 6-7) and Turkey (October 11-12).

The American driver will rallycross his way through the aforementioned events in a Hoonigan Racing/Monster Energy Ford Fiesta.

“I’m stoked with how the new liveries for my Ford Fiestas have turned out, as well as the race schedule we’ve been able to put together for 2014.  Once again I’ve been fortunate enough to put together a highly diverse schedule that has me going around the world... and, most interestingly, racing in three of the World Rallycross Championship rounds for the first time ever. I’m pretty sure nobody has a better job than me this year!”
