    Cool Ken Block Monster World Rally Team Livery Revealed

    The newly formed Monster World Rally Team has released pictures of its Rally America Championship Fiesta S2000, featuring a striking livery which will be carried across to the team's Ford Focus in the 2010 World Rally Championship.
    The team has also confirmed the WRC events lead driver Ken Block will tackle in his Focus this year, as well as the events in the USA he will contest with the Fiesta.

    The new livery features a white base car (and interior) onto which the black and green Monster colour scheme appears to have been dripped. The livery also carries a bright orange splash logo for DC Shoes, the skateboard footwear company Block co-founded, as well as branding for the video game, Dirt2, in which Block had a starring role.
    A source within the team confirmed to wrc.com that Block's Focus RS WRC livery will look 'very similar' but with the addition of a Stobart logo under the drivers' door.
    Block will tackle a seven round WRC programme with the M-Sport-run Focus in 2010, starting with Rally Mexico on 5-7 March.

    His programme also includes the rounds in Turkey, (16-18 April), Portugal (28-30 May), Germany (20-22 August), France (30 September - 3 October), Spain (22-24 October) and GB (11-14 November).

    In a parallel programme, Block and co-driver Alex Gelsomino will drive the Fiesta S2000 on the following events in the USA:

    Rally America Championship:
    Sno*Drift: 29-30 January
    100 Acre Wood: 26-27 February
    Olympus: 24-25 April
    Oregon Trail: 14-16 May
    STPR: 4-5 June
    New England Forest: 16-17 July

    The pair will also compete in X Games XVI between 29 July and 1 August.

    Block's Monster dream to run for at least three years.

    American rally star Ken Block says he will fulfil a lifelong ambition to compete in the WRC when he tackles his first event, Rally Mexico, with the new Monster World Rally Team in March.

    A seasoned competitor in the Rally America series, Block is best known around the globe for his stunt driving exploits - including a series of internet videos which have been viewed more than 50 million times.

    Now, with the backing of Ford and Monster Energy, Block has the chance to compete in the series that fired his imagination as a child. "When I was growing up world rallying was what inspired me to drive a car," he told wrc.com. "It just looked like the most fun. In America, the major TV sports for cars back then were ones where the cars went in circles or straight ahead, and that didn't inspire me the way that the WRC did. Competing in the WRC has been a dream since I was a little kid. In my mind, world rally drivers are the greatest in the world. I'm very happy to be here and it's such a huge honour to be on the stages with people like Petter, Sebastien Loeb and now Kimi Raikkonen."

    Block, 42, will drive an M-Sport-built Ford Focus RS WRC on a seven round programme in 2010, as part of a long term career development plan which extends for three years. "Getting into the WRC you can't be expected to be instantly competitive - it takes years to get up to speed," he explained. "My plan goes right through 2012, so I'm looking to get time in the car this year, so in 2011 and 2012 I can be more competitive."

    In 2010 year the Monster World Rally Team will field just one car on the majority of its nominated rallies, however Block hopes to add more cars to the squad in the future, with his friend and former Subaru factory team driver Chris Atkinson in the frame for a seat in 2011, and possibly before the end of this year.

    "We really tried to work out some deals to get him in the team this year." said Block. "I really like Chris, he's a really good guy and an amazing driver, but unfortunately the deals didn't come together how we wanted. We're looking to have him come out possibly for an event or two this year - we're not really sure when or where - and then looking to have him in the team for 2011.

    But that's all up to sponsors and what my agents can do with putting some deals together.

    We want the team to feature multiple drivers over the years, and Chris is someone I like and respect so we're looking to try and have him as part of the team."
