Ken Block visiting Manila

We smell a lot of burnt rubber!

This one's for all the hooning fans in the Philippines. According to a source from Ford Group Philippines, the great Ken Block--that insanely awesome stunt and rally driver from the US of A--is coming over to Manila as early as December to help promote DC Shoes, of which Block is both founder and chief brand officer.

But while Block is reportedly coming here as an ambassador of DC Shoes, Ford will also be part of the action as the superstar driver is expected to perform his driving repertoire before Filipino fans using a Fiesta. Block currently drives a Fiesta in the World Rally Championship under the Monster World Rally Team. This would easily be a greater spectacle than Russ Swift doing donuts in a Subaru Impreza WRX STI. Actually, Block himself used to drive Subarus before switching to Ford this year. (See Ken Block giving Top Gear's James May a ride in an Impreza.)
