Watch Ken Block meet (and drift) the Ford Focus RS RX
See Ford's rally-bred racer through the eyes of its famous pilot.
The video shows Block grinning as he settles into the driver's seat and offers suggestions to Ford engineers for the angle of controls. He's been anticipating this moment. "It's been such a long project in development [with] so many people involved and it's been really a cool experience to get to this point," he says in the video. "So actually seeing the car in the flesh for the first time ever was amazing."
The video features the RS RX going through its shakedown, and it's done up with lots of slow-motion spins and drifts. Block is impressed, and the RS RX is more than adept at tackling the historic Kirkbride Airfield in the United Kingdom. As Block and Bakkerud have proven, it's also handled the early part of the WRC season in solid fashion.
