Ken Block Hits Silverstone in His Hoonicorn

Hoonicorn silversone 600x350 at Ken Block Hits Silverstone in His Hoonicorn

Master drifter and Gymkhana hero Ken Block was in the UK recently on some errand where the guys from Autocar kidnapped him for an exclusive interview. They wanted to know the secret of drifting like Ken, or at the very least the physics of it, because Block makes it look like a walk in the park, and they wanted a go in the Hoonicorn.

A large part of Gymkhana’s success in its recent editions is due to the Hoonicorn Mustang RTR drift car. Ken started out with Suabrus and Fords, but honestly they were getting a bit boring. He needed a bigger weapon and that’s exactly what he got:
