Ken Block Dies In Snowmobile Accident
Ken Block, famed professional rally driver and the driving force behind the Hoonigan brand, has passed away at the age of 55 in a snowmobile accident. Block was a transcendent action sports star who competed in skateboarding, snowboarding, and motocross events during his storied career. He was also famous for his Gymkhana series of extreme auto sports videos.
Last year, Audi announced that it would be working with Block on his next Gymkhana project, and the partnership would include building a completely custom EV for Block to pilot in his latest stunt-filled video.
We'll have more on this tragic story as it develops.
Below is a statement from Hoonigans Instagram account.
It's with our deepest regrets that we can confirm that Ken Block passed away in a snowmobile accident today.
Ken was a visionary, a pioneer and an icon. And most importantly, a father and husband.
He will be incredibly missed.
Please respect the family's privacy at this time while they grieve
