Ken Block, one of the world’s most spectacular drivers, is back at the Goodwood Festival of Speed to debut the all-new Ford Focus RS.


The Hoonicorn was used in Block’s most recent viral video, Gymkhana 7, which has gained more than 24 million views on YouTube since its release in November 2014. Watch the Video above


This years Festival of Speed theme is ‘Flat-Out and Fearless: Racing on the Edge’. Block, many of you know through his highly amazing Gymkhana videos with already over 300 million views on YouTube.

Some children are born with skills for Ken at an early age it was car control – drifting he has now made into an artform. His videos are created in the heart of cities such as Los Angeles and San Francisco, all types of street furniture, buildings, bridges and other immovable objects are used to maximise the effect.

This year at Goodwood, Block will be  putting the new Focus RS though its paces. The hottest new hatchback and the latest from the Ford Performance division.

Block will also be showing off his skills in the incredible ‘Hoonicorn’, a 1965 Ford Mustang ‘notchback’ that has been customised with four-wheel-drive, an 845bhp Ford V8 engine, bespoke suspension and tyres and bodywork inspired by rally and racing cars plus toys he owned as a child!

This years event is from June 25-28. Tickets are available from or via the Goodwood Ticket Office on 01243 755055
