Ken Block to make one-off Formula One debut

Ken Block

Ken Block is well know for his hatred of tires and love for drifting. The professional rally racer with the Monster World Rally Team has become an Internet sensation with his Gymkhana drifting videos.

Well, Kenny from the Block will be turning in his drifting gloves for one day to make his Formula One debut in August when he’ll get the chance to drive Pirelli’s Toyota test car. Block will get the chance to have a one-off spin in the 700-hp 2009 Toyota F1 car, which will be used to test tires worn by Mssrs Vettel and Lewis Hamilton at the famous Monza circuit in Italy.

“I can’t wait to discover Formula One for myself,” says Block. “I need to be realistic about what I can do, but I know that it’s going to be a lot of fun and take hooning to a whole new level.”
