Block and co-driver are okay, but the Cossie burned beyond recognition.
Last fall, Ken Block teased his next big project, a custom rally-spec Ford Escort RS Cosworth. This isn't just some 25-year-old economy car. The Escort RS Cosworth was a fully homologated rally machine. Block's is one of just a few thousand that were ever built. This isn't just some show car either. Block plans to race it in several rally series around the world. The Escort RS Cosworth will also star in "GymkhanaTEN" sometime this fall.
