Hoonigan Racing Division’s Ken Block took his second rallycross podium (of two RX races so far this season) of the year with a 3rd place overall at the ARX round in Trois-Rivieres, Canada.
Block lead the way with Loenbro Motorsports teammate Steve Arpin in Q1, finishing 1st in his race and sitting 2nd overall after day one. When qualifying was complete, Block held P2 overall and Steve Arpin was on P4, setting Block up for pole position in Semi-Final 2 with Arpin right next to him. Block made it all the way into the final, where he drove an impressive race and came away with 3rd overall.
It was a challenging weekend to find the top pace, but Loenbro Motorsports’ ongoing development of the Ford Focus RS RX continues to make good progress, and both cars are increasingly more competitive.
Block currently sits 4th overall in the championship with 49 points despite having skipped the season opener at Silverstone. He will race one more ARX round this year in September (at COTA) to make another push at the top of the podium!
