Ken Block

Kenneth Paul Block (November 21, 1967 – January 2, 2023) was an American professional rally driver with the Hoonigan Racing Division, formerly known as the Monster World Rally Team. Block was also one of the co-founders of DC Shoes. He also competed in many action sports events, including skateboarding, snowboarding, and motocross. After selling his ownership of DC Shoes, Block shifted his business focus to Hoonigan Industries, an apparel brand for auto enthusiasts. He was the co-owner and "Head Hoonigan In Charge" (HHIC) at the company before his death.

Such sad news. What a legend. I think he lived the dream.

Tyre manufacturers will be gutted as well!

Really bummed to hear about Ken. He lived what appeared to be an incredible life. We have his films and cars that hopefully will live on forever.

Worked on an event with him a few years ago - just as enthusiastic and just as much in love with doing "car guy" stuff in person as he came across publicly. Very down to earth and very much a family man.

Very sad loss and RIP Ken.

So sad. A larger than life character who remained down to earth. And a quite good driver too. For someone who was so great behind the wheel, to lose his life in a snowmobile is quite surreal, but very tragic all the same.

RIP Ken
