Ken Block: An Inspiration To Motorsport

Everyone who is part of the motoring world has been deeply saddened by the loss of a legend, Ken Block, who passed away at the age of 55. Ken Block has been influencing the motorsport scene and car enthusiasts since 2005 when he entered Rally America and shined his amazing talent with a great performance. He has been impressing us ever since with more rally championship podiums and the start of the famous Gymkhana series.     

Ken Block Master Class...

Ken Block is the co-founder of DC shoes and the amazing Gymkhana series where he would perform stunt courses with precision and outlandish driving that stretched the limits of what you could do in a car. He has filmed these videos with many different vehicles, and courses over many years, with each video getting more intense and dangerous. The incredible stunt driving made the whole series go viral with well over 550 million views, that’s when Ken Block changed automotive filmmaking forever. 

Ken Block On Top Gear...

Ken Block has touched many corners of motorsport in his life, as well as making a couple of occurrences on the popular motorsport TV show, Top Gear. He showcased a vast amount of rally driving and stunt driving skills during these Top Gear episodes that have inspired and influenced drivers all over the world, it’s no exaggeration to say that we all take something from the experience when we see Ken Block in action. 

We have linked the Ken Block tribute from Top Gear below, it also talks about the filming that took place on the show with Ken Block and the influence he had on motorsport.

Ken Block And Hoonigan...

Ken Block co-founded Hoonigan and they call themselves more than just a brand, but a family, a community of people who are fueled by the shared passion of going fast and breaking things. 

This is where you can see Ken Block work his magic with his hands at the wheel on the Hoonigan YouTube channel, all the amazing Gymkhana videos can be found on this here. Some of our favorite moments are the famous Evo corner in the ‘Hoonicorn’ and the thrilling slide in the Ford Fiesta hanging over the water’s edge.

His inspiring and mesmerising films of impressive driving and bravery will live on forever, Ken will be sorely missed by millions, and our thoughts and respects are with his family and friends. Rest in peace, Ken Block.
