Ken Block attempting 5-peat at 100 Acre Rally in new Ford Fiesta [w/video]
Ken Block and his co-driver Alex Gelsomino are headed back to the 100 Acre Wood Rally this weekend in an attempt to dominate the race for the fifth consecutive year. However, the major difference is what the gravel-bound duo are driving: The #43 Monster World Rally Team Ford Fiesta.
After a suspension issue resulted in a DNF for the team at the Sno*Drift rally earlier this month, Block and Gelsomino are out to prove the Fiesta is up to the task of beating snow, gravel and ice into submission. To that end, they headed out to SayersBrook Bison Ranch this week to give the Fiesta a proper shakedown ahead of the event, and you can check out the results in the video after the jump.
The 100 Acre Wood Rally is the second race of the Rally-America Championship Series and is known as one of the most scenic. Named after the storybook home of Winnie the Pooh, the 100 Acre Wood Rally is a picturesque race with enough twists and turns to test every driver's ability. Set in the foothills of the Ozark Mountains of Missouri this race is always a favorite due to its pristine surroundings and fast, tight roads. Although you won't see Winnie the Pooh or any of his friends, you will see some of the best rally driving on some of the best rally roads in North America.
