Ken Block gets a rallycross team mate
Norway’s Andreas Bakkerud will join Ken Block’s Hoonigan Racing Division to form a two-car Supercar team in the 2016 FIA World Rallycross Championship presented by Monster Energy. Bakkerud drove for Ford Olsbergs MSE in last year’s World RX alongside Latvian Reinis Nitiss finishing fourth in the overall drivers’ standings and taking the victory at World RX of Italy. In 2014, Bakkerud triumphed at the inaugural World RX of Turkey and in previous years took wins in both Sweden and France. Bakkerud will join Block on the starting grid at the World RX season-opener in Portugal (15-17 April), piloting the number 13 Ford from Hoonigan Racing Division.
