It's a rainy day in England but that doesn't stop Ryan Tuerck from taking some laps at the Gymkhana Grid in Ken Block's rear-wheel-drive Ford Escort Mk2 RS. Special guest appearance by some of the Monster Energy Girls...
Only Ken Block would think of making a 1978 Ford Escort Mk2 RS with rear-wheel-drive his new Gymkhana car. And luckily for Ryan Tuerck, he gets to "test" it out.
On-hand for the upcoming Gymkhana Grid Finals in England, Tuerck gets to take Ken's first-ever rear-wheel-drive Gymkhana vehicle for a bit of a spin. Boasting all the bells and whistles of Ken's high-end, WRC Ford Fiesta, the Mk2 packs "a 2.5-liter, four-cylinder Millington motor that generates 333 naturally-aspirated horses and absolutely screams at the limit when stretched out to the 9,000 rpm redline. Power is sent to the rear wheels via a six-speed sequential gearbox."
Stay tuned for more of Tuerck at the Gymkhana Grid soon.
