FIA Retires #43 for 2023 Season
At the beginning of the week we received the stunning news that Ken Block had passed away in a snowmobile accident. The news was followed by an outcry from so many on his passing that it filled up social media sources and shut down responses due to flooding comment sections. This included friends, family, major brands, and literally anyone that had an association with him. All posting their condolences and respect for the legendary rally driver. The love for Ken Block was on full display with how much he meant to so many that honored his efforts and example.
The FIA along with World Rally Championship that made him a legend heard the outcry and on January 9th announced they would also be honoring Ken and the infamous #43 by retiring the number for the 2023 season.
It is clear that Ken's passion for not only motorsports, but automotive art and design, as well as his social media presence made an impact on all those associated with it. He went above and beyond and touched something in everyone that worked with him as he shared his passion. The passion of living life to the fullest and being humble in success. An impact that I feel we didn't fully understood until it was gone.
