Block aiming for three WRC rounds

Autosport

Ken Block intends to contest a three-round World Rally Championship programme again in 2013.

The American has been a WRC regular since 2007, and was at one stage working towards becoming a full-time entrant.

But he cut down his WRC appearances last year due to his other commitments in American rallying, rallycross and with his hugely successful Gymkhana tour and associated activities.

Despite a similar busy schedule this season, Block said his renamed Hoonigan Racing Division would still be involved in the WRC.

"I really enjoy being able to stay somewhat competitive in WRC, despite only competing part-time and not being able to log any testing in the car prior to the actual events," said Block, who took ninth-place finishes in Mexico and New Zealand last year.

"Hopefully I'll be running a similar amount of WRC events in 2013."
