Hoonigan Racing reveal new look for 2017 FIA WorldRX season

Hoonigan Racing have debuted their latest livery for the upcoming 2017 FIA World Rallycross Championship.

With Ken Block and Andreas Bakkerud in the Ford Performance Focus RS RX‘s for a second season an updated look has been called for.

Teaming up with UK artist David Gwyther a.k.a. Death Spray Custom, the new liveries ‘harness the look of intense energy (via bolts) while combining a 3D element to the pattern’

“Every year, we here at Hoonigan Racing and Hoonigan Industries try and make the best racecar liveries in the world of motorsports,” said Block.

“We’ve been able to keep it moving forward with what we do and we’re always trying to align our liveries with amazing graphics and artists so that it translates in a dope way to become a visually appealing and unique looking racecar on the track — and therefore will make fresh apparel with Hoonigan, and other awesome products with our other partners.”

Block continued, “I’ve been a fan of David’s [Death Spray Custom] work for some time and I’m stoked that we were able to work together on this year’s livery. It’s great to have him be a part of our collective history as a race team.”

“I misspent my youth by being crammed in the back of an early Ford Escort, chasing rally stages all over the UK,” said Death Spray Custom. “In 2017 it seemed fitting to misspend my time with Ken Block and the Hoonigan team.”

Both Ken Block and Andreas Bakkerud will be in action this coming weekend, Sunday 2 April, in Round 1 of the 2017 World RX championship season.
