Toyo Tires presents Ken Block’s Climbkhana: Pikes Peak. Witness man versus mountain, 14,000ft vs Block’s 1,400-horsepower twin-turbo methanol fueled 1965 Ford Mustang Hoonicorn RTR V2, equipped with Toyo Proxes R888R tires. In classic Block-fashion, his all-wheel-drive Mustang hangs along the razor edge of the legendary Pikes Peak hill climb.
One of the megastars of this year’s Festival of Speed was gymkhana-master Ken Block. Ken brought the one-off ‘Hoonicorn’ Mustang to the hill, and although it was his first time at Goodwood he didn’t hold back, dispersing rubber all the way up the run. He seemed to be on a special mission to kill the tyres at the top staging area, which is where I caught up with him. Awesome car, and genuinely cool guy!
