    Ken Block is moving to Ford Motorsports - BOO

    "Today it's official - Ken Block is moving to Ford Motorsports for both the Rally America Championship, as well as the World Rally Championship.

    According to Block, “Ford is the only manufacturer that could provide Ken with global rally opportunities.”

    He has a point there.

    I object to the logo more than anything else. In my area it's everywhere! Ford has a terrific history (at one point, the Escort was the car with the most wins in the world) and they have a budget so I can understand the move. Everyone's got bills to pay.

    Yeah, I can understand. I'm not knocking Ford per say, I'd just rather see him stay with Subaru. :-(

    Darn that sucks, I think his Subby was amazing aswell as his driving. But don't worry Ill replace him in the Subby IDK how but when I get a bit older am going to try and get into the racing business. It's going to be hard but I just hate sitting in front of a computer all day like I do at work (am 15 btw and I work once or twice a week). Ever since I moved to the US (8 years old) I have been fasinated by cars maybe because my dad started his proffesion as a mechanic here(I work with him when am not doing homework and such). The thing is for the time I drive (not much since I dont even have my permit arrg need to be 16 MARCH HURRY!) I enjoy it very much, idk if its just something because am a "Kid" but I just feel so good everything else just dissapears and am in my own world.

    Well Subaru "did" bow out of WRC so I feel it only forced him in another direction.

    Not a fan either... Compare/contrast kid with energy drink kit bought from mall and YouTube connection to someone that's the real deal:

    +1 However, I really liked the Ken Block Signature shoe that DC released. It's just impossible to buy in a size 13

    I have always liked the Ford logo.


    It seems they have circled the problem.
