Ken Block's 2014 Ford Fiesta HFHV

The first video of Ken Block's new Hoonigan Racing Division Fiesta in action

Yesterday we brought you the news of racing legend Ken Block’s new Hoonigan Racing Division and the new blue paint scheme that came with the new team name and today – we get our first look at Block’s Monster Energy Drink Ford Fiesta rally car tackling the snowy backwoods of Michigan’s Sno Drift 2013.

Ken Block has announced that he would be competing in the 2013 Rally America Championship in his new Hoonigan Racing Division Ford Fiesta with the first stop for his predominantly blue rally car sponsored by Monster Energy Drink and DC Shoes being the Sno Drift 2013 in south eastern Michigan. This event officially begins later today but Ken has spent the past few days out practicing on the snow covered course and with his return to American stage rally racing – he was kind enough to offer up the first video of his new race car in action.

This first video of Ken Block’s new Hoonigan Racing Division Fiesta in action is short but sweet – showing the new colorful race purposed Ford Compact ripping through the snow during practice for this weekend’s Sno Drift 2013. As is the case with many of Ken’s videos, this first Hoonigan Racing Division clip includes co-pilot Alex Gelsomino and like all of the insanely popular Block videos – this new piece includes plenty of awesome slow motion shots (both inside of the car and outside), freeze frames, some background music that Ken refers to as “face melting metal” and even a few instances where the sweet engine sounds of the Monster Energy Drink Ford Fiesta overpowering the heavy metal.
