It is an incredibly sad day in the motorsport community, with the news the famous American rally car driver Ken Block has died in a snowmobile accident at the age of 55.
Ken's influence on motorsport stretched far and wide. Apart from a successful rally career, he founded the motor racing team Hoonigan and was also a co-founder of DC Shoes. He even had an impact on video game series like Forza Motorsport and Forza Horizon over the years - with many titles drawing inspiration from his famous Gymkhana series.
As a mark of respect, the Forza Motorsport and Forza Horizon teams have both issued messages of support to Ken's family and friends via social media. Other car games have also taken a moment to pay their respects:
Forza Motorsport: "@kblock43 from @TheHoonigans had a huge influence on the motorsports community around the world. Our deepest condolences to his family. You will be missed, Ken."
Forza Horizon: "Devastating news about the loss of @kblock43 - he was a legend in Motorsports and will be dearly missed. Our deepest condolences to his family and the team at @TheHoonigans"
Turn 10 Studio Head Alan Hartman: "Was such a pleasure to know you, share laughs, and a few passions. #RipLegend @kblock43"
Gran Turismo: "RIP Ken Block. A legend lost too soon."
On behalf of the team and community here at Pure Xbox, our thoughts go out to Ken's family and friends during this difficult time.
