    cool news, good luck to Ken and Ford

    -----------------------------------------------
    American rally star Ken Block will compete in the World Rally Championship in 2010 and 2011 as part of the newly formed 'Monster World Rally Team', backed by the American energy drink company and Ford.

    In the WRC, Block will be driving a Focus RS WRC prepared by M-Sport, the company responsible for handling Ford’s World Rally programme. M-Sport’s Managing Director, Malcolm Wilson said: “It is great news that Ken will be joining the WRC and even better that it will be with Ford! Ken has been instrumental in elevating the public awareness of rallying throughout the world with his multimedia exploits, particularly in the U.S. which is a key global market and an area where WRC has yet to reach its full potential."

    In addition to his WRC programme, Block will continue to compete in the Rally America series, as well as in X-Games XVI, in another Ford - a Fiesta prepared by Olsbergs MSE. “I am stoked to be rallying in a Ford,” said Block. “They are an impressive force in the sport. From the days of the 1970s Escorts to the Group B RS200, to the modern-day Focus and now the Fiesta, Ford has an excellent history within rally. I couldn’t be happier to be part of this amazing heritage. Not to mention my dad would be proud. He was a true Ford guy.”

    Around here they are all DB shirts for the most part.

    heres my .02

    yes there is a reason everybody here is ragging on ford, they've been making some pretty craptastic cars for a while now. that being said though, ive always believed the european performance focuses were amazing cars and i wanted so bad for them to come to america. and when i saw the ford fiesta i liked that one too. and i cant be the only one that thought the 08+ impreza hatches look like ford designed them when they were first shown

    for some reason, the "american" car company that is ford cant build a decent car for america but in europe they arent bad at all. and as someone said before me, subaru left the sport, it doesnt give ken much of a choice now does it?

    I agree. The euro Focus RS, Fiesta, Falcon XR8, Merkur XR4Ti/Sierras, Sapphire RS, Older Euro Escorts, etc. They are all winners, in my book.


    I don't really (directly) blame Ford US, more so blame the US Govt. for their rules and stringent guidlines placed before the US automakers. But that's another discussion.
