“He will be incredibly missed.”

One of American rallying’s biggest names, Block had come closer than ever to landing his maiden domestic title in 2022, winning four from eight rounds aboard a Hyundai i20 Coupe WRC.

The 55-year-old was expected to return to the America Rally Association in the coming season.

DirtFish extends its deepest sympathies to Block’s family and many, many friends around the world.
