We are delighted to announce that American professional rally driver and internet phenomenon, Ken Block, will join the Tuthill Porsche team for the 2021 East African Safari Classic Rally.
Run over nine days and this year covering some 5,000 kilometres through Kenya’s northern territory, the legendary East African Safari Classic Rally is the world’s most challenging historic motorsport event. Tuthill Porsche has won this rally four times with drivers including the former world champions, Björn Waldegård and Stig Blomqvist. As a veteran with over ten years’ experience at world championship level, Ken is an exciting addition to our driver lineup.
“This will be a wild year!” said Ken. “The opportunity to do things like the Safari Rally with Tuthill Porsche is huge. I can’t wait to push myself to the absolute limit, across some of the gnarliest terrain, in an air-cooled 911 prepared by the best in the business.”
“It’s a huge honour to be joined by one of motorsport’s most influential figures for our favourite event: Kenya’s East African Safari Classic Rally,” said Richard Tuthill. “Ken’s proven skills and depth of experience will make him a serious contender in Kenya, and his boundless enthusiasm for all things rallying will enthrall the Safari Classic’s devoted audience. We’re thrilled to welcome Ken to our team and look forward to introducing him to life behind the wheel of a Safari 911 on the world’s most wonderful rally.”
