Unless you’ve been living in a van down by the river with no internet access for the last few years, you’re probably familiar with Ken Block. Back in 2010, the rally driver and Gymkhana legend formed Monster World Rally Team, which has since been renamed to Hoonigan Racing Division (HRD). The team competes in the World Rally Championship, Global RallyCross Championship, World Rallycross Championship, and Rally America. Block recently gave Ford Racing a tour of the HRD headquarters, with the walkthrough being captured on video.
The tour takes us from the facility’s various lounges and conference room to Block’s office and shop floor, where cars are built and repaired after races. The HQ features many unique touches such as a chainsaw, stuffed bear, plus shredded wheels and tires from Block’s various races. And it wouldn’t be Hoonigan without a plethora of shipping containers.
But if you’re a car or racing enthusiast (or both), it’s the cars in the garage that you’re most interested in. And for good measure: during the tour, the garage had a few high-performers, such as Block’s Fiesta ST rally cars, a special project RaptorTRAX, as well as Ford production vehicles like the Focus ST and Block’s daily driver, the F-150 Raptor. Block also expresses how much he appreciates being sponsored by Ford thanks to The Blue Oval’s wide portfolio of vehicles. As it stands, the only way one can get an in-person tour of the HRD HQ is by signing up for the ST Octane Academy at Miller Motorsports Park.
Watch the tour for yourself:
Stay tuned for more all-access features from Ford Racing, which promise to showcase teams and drivers while taking us behind the scenes of series such as NASCAR, IMSA, NHRA, Formula Drift, and Red Bull Global Rallycross.
