“We’re absolutely delighted to have Ken Block and Hoonigan Racing on board for three rounds of this year’s FIA World Rallycross Championship,” said managing director of world RX for IMG Motorsport Martin Anayi. “Block’s style epitomises World RX and his huge international following will help lift the profile of our championship to a younger and more digitally-savvy generation.
