Ford and Monster Energy certainly are doing a great job of promoting the new Fiesta and Ken Block, but so far there hasn’t much else than hype to talk about. Ford’s Fiesta Pikes Peak cars were a disappointment and while Block has a great track record, nothing has come of the pairing yet.
Block has signed on with Ford to race a Fiesta rally car in the Rally America series this year and while he’s shown us what he can do, during some practice time in the video above, unfortunately he registered a DNF over the weekend during the first race of the season at the Sno*Drift Rally in Atlanta, Michigan.
First place in the Open class went to Block’s old team, Subaru Rally Team USA, with a WRX STi piloted by Travis Pastrana and Christian Edstrom. Second place went to the Rockstar Mitsubishi EVO X of Antoine L’Estage and Nathalie Richard, while the third place on the podium was captured by William Bacon and Peter Watt in an EVO IX.
The next race of the series is the Rally in the 100 Acre Wood, February 26-27 in Salem, MO.
