“It takes a huge amount of effort and training to race in the WRC, but I’ll be cramming that into a short period of testing beforehand,” Block told WRC.com. “It’s not really enough time in the car to properly prepare for a WRC attack, but I’ll take what I can get!”
Block scored a ninth-place finish in the WRC’s Spanish event in a Ford Focus back in 2010 alongside co-driver Alex Gelsomino, who’ll be in the navigator’s seat once again in October. The Catalunya-based rally will be Block’s 25th WRC start since he made his debut at the sport’s top level back in 2007. His best finish to date is seventh place at Rally Mexico in 2013.
