“Ken Block has established himself as an action sports competitor and a rising star in the world of American rally racing,” Jamie Allison, director Ford North America Motorsports added. “We are excited to have him on our team to help promote our new global products, the 2011 Ford Fiesta and 2012 Ford Focus.”
"Thanks to our participation in WRC, rallying has always played a key role in Ford’s global motorsports programs. Ford is the only manufacturer that could provide Ken with global rally opportunities.”
Back in October, Block already hinted to a move to Ford after rumor surfaced about him signing a deal with Monster Energy Drink World Rally Team, making the US one of the stops of the WRC in the 2010 season.
