After a four-year hiatus, Hoonigan Racing Division's Ken Block returned to the Goodwood Festival of Speed. The world famous event, hosted by Lord March who happens to own the Goodwood property, is a yearly car concours show where a lot of the amazing cars get to drive and race up Lord March’s personal hill climb road (which is actually his driveway). For 2015, Block headed out with his 1965 Ford Mustang Hoonicorn RTR and the all-new 2016 Ford Focus RS. The event marked only the second time that Block's Hoonicorn had been driven for the public and the first time that the public had been able to see the Focus RS in action in public.
In true Hoonicorn fashion, Block tore up the tarmac (and some of Lord March's grass alongside the track) in his Mustang for the fans at Goodwood, and also pushed the new RS to the limits as he continually stepped the tail out, highlighting the all wheel-drive system that the RS will be coming with.
"I had an awesome time at Goodwood this year," said Block. I hadn't made it out in a few years due to schedule conflicts and I'd been missing it. The event is such a great mix of motorsport personalities, amazing old and new cars and knowledgable fans. The posh English setting is a nice bonus, too! But, I really enjoyed running up the hill in my Hoonicorn and the new Focus RS. I think the fans enjoyed it too! I even was able to give a ride to Lord March himself on Sunday morning in the Hoonicorn, he seemed pretty stoked about it! Hopefully I'll be able to return next summer."
