Ken Block to limit 2012 WRC scheduleAuthor: David
Ken Block shed some light on his plans for 2012 recently and it appears he will be cutting back on his WRC appearances. Although he wouldn’t to commit to much of anything, he did make it clear he will be participating in as many Global RallyCross events as possible and will be limiting the time he spends on the WRC. This is somewhat sad news as he seemed to be making big strides scoring points in 2 WRC events near the end of the 2011 season, but it really doesn’t surprise me too much. I have speculated that Ken might be done with WRC altogether, but it does appear he will make at least a couple appearances next year.
Another confirmed event for the Monster World Rally Team is one that Block has had a lot of success at in the past, Rally America 100 Acre Wood. He has won that event 5 times in his career, with his last win coming in 2010, as he sat out the event last year. My guess is that he will then make the trip down to WRC Mexico which is right after 100 Acre Wood. Block also said that he would like to compete in the full Rally America championship, but some of the dates conflict with the Global RallyCross schedule. Hopefully one of those 2 organizations will move their schedule around, as it would be disappointing for drivers and teams to have to choose between the 2.
Look for a a complete schedule for Ken Block and the Monster World Rally Team soon.
