Block : I'm in auto heaven
Speaking about the event, Ken Block said that he felt almost in an automobile paradise and said, “Our tours in the Audi RS Q e-tron; although the vehicle probably feels more comfortable in the desert than in the snow, it was an extraordinary experience. I would like to thank Mattias Ekström for patiently explaining all the features of his vehicle to me. A few minutes behind the wheel was enough to understand the magic of this car.” said.
Swedish driver Mattias Ekström, who finished ninth in the 2022 Dakar Rally and was the most successful Audi driver, said: “It took only three laps for Ken to fully accelerate.” said.
Ken Block, who used the other models at the event as well as the Audi RS Q e-tron, said that in his youth he was inspired and inspired by Audi's rally cars. “It was a crazy moment I will never forget. There will be even more moments like this very soon.” he said.
As is known, Audi produces the all-electric Audi S1 e-tron quattro Hoonitron vehicle for Ken Block, inspired by the Audi Sport quattro S1. The team will release a video titled "Electrikhana", the final episode of the "Gymkhana" series, in the next few months.
