Ken Block’s out of rallycross, but he’s not done with racing. Block is actually headed back to stage rally, but he’s not going to race in the ultra-competitive World Rally Championship against the likes of Sebastien Ogier. At least, not with his latest race car.

This car is Block’s new-to-him 1991 Ford Escort Cosworth rally car. The Escort was built to run in the WRC’s Group A class and was updated over its life to stay competitive. Block restored the car to race-ready condition and should fill his days racing it through the forests in American rally stages.

Even if he doesn’t, the 2.0-liter turbocharged I4-powered Escort looks like more than enough fun to just rip around and do all-wheel-drive donuts. Like a proper rally car needs to be, it appears Block’s Escort is registered for road use and would make one hell of a daily driver.
