    Ken Block's 1400-HP Hoonicorn, Rob Dahm's 1400-HP RX-7 to Face Off (caranddriver.com)

    It'll be quite possibly the most epic drag race of 2020. Tune in on December 14 to see who wins.

    "Can my Ford Mustang RTR Hoonicorn keep up with a purpose-built drag car - on huge slicks?? Find out in the new episode of Hoonicorn Vs The World, where I line up against this 1,100 hp ‘66 Nova! Episode 7 is now up"

    "This is one of the most “Forza-ish”(@Forza Horizon) matchups of the whole Hoonigan Vs The World series: iconic Ford Mustang versus iconic Ford GT!"

    EPISODE 9:

    "Ford vs Ferrari. Old school versus new school. Can the tech-packed 2019 Ferrari F8 Tributo hang with the old school (well, sort of) American muscle of my Ford Mustang RTR Hoonicorn?"

    Last episode of Hoonicorn Vs The World... and I am racing a bread van??

    Ha. YES. It’s the Hoonigan “Merch Van”. And, I get to hoon... as part of one of the races!! This is by far one of my favorite episodes. See it tomorrow

    From Ken Block:

    "180 mph fly by!! This is what happened when I gave the Hoonigan Merch Van, piloted by Zac, a huge lead off the start. See more of these shenanigans, in one of my fav episodes of the year:

    "Last ride of the Hoonicorn??

    It might just be. With the announcement that Ford and I are “seeing other people” today, we launched this episode on my YouTube channel to celebrate my Ford Mustang RTR Hoonicorn V2, shot at the end of the Hoonicorn Vs The World shoot.

    Enjoy this rad send off of my favorite vehicle ever!"

    "It’s been a great ride with Ford!

    From winning races all over the world, to scoring a few points in WRC, to building epic vehicles, to producing some amazing films with 500+ million view viral success on YouTube, to Emmy nominations for documentary filmmaking... we’ve done a lot of awesome stuff together in our partnership over the past 11 years! (read more here in our press release) …

    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

    KEN BLOCK BECOMES FREE AGENT AFTER 11 RENOWNED YEARS WITH FORD MOTOR COMPANY

    Park City, UT / [January 8th, 2021]: Ken Block and Ford Motor Company’s exclusive partnership has brought in some real hardware over the past decade in rally and rallycross. 19 race wins plus 17 other podium finishes, 2 X Games medals, well over a billion video views across Block’s social media platforms, and the first ever World Rally Championship points scored for the brand by an American driver. As of January 2021, that exclusivity comes to an end, with Block becoming a free agent. And that means his options behind the wheel are now wide open.

    “Working with Ford over the past decade has been awesome.” says Ken Block. “From racing all over the world, to accumulating a half billion views from Gymkhana THREE to Gymkhana TEN, to creating the Emmy nominated series The Gymkhana Files for Amazon Prime - along with building a fleet of Fords including the iconic AWD Mustang Hoonicorn and F-150 Hoonitruck - it’s been a great partnership. It’s simply been a dream come true to work with the company that built the truck that my Dad drove when I was a teenager. I’m super appreciative to Ford for the support over the years, but I am also looking forward to what an unrestricted 2021 holds, and the ability to spread my wings a bit and play with a lot other toys.”

    2020 was a big year for Block and his Ford vehicles. He took the overall win at Rally Barbados in a WRC2 Ford Fiesta, won his class (and 3rd overall) at Rally Legend in San Marino in his Ford Escort Cossie V2, and also won the first ever Projekt E race of the FIA World RallyCross Championship in Holjes, Sweden, in a Ford Fiesta. Along with winning races, Block and Hoonigan launched the all-new viral video series,- Hoonicorn Vs The World. Spanning 11 episodes, the series features Ken racing his 1965 Ford Mustang RTR Hoonicorn against a variety of wild vehicles including a McLaren Senna and the World’s Fastest Donk. The series has been viewed over 34 million times since its launch in late November.

    What does the next chapter have in store? Ken Block and Hoonigan Racing Division will be announcing new partnerships very soon."
