Watch Ken Block’s 14-Year-Old Daughter Drift a Fox Body Ford Mustang
Learning to drive may be the greatest rite of passage for a youngster, but it seems especially memorable for Ken Block’s daughter, Lia. After receiving a Fox Body Mustang for her 14th birthday, she was taken by her father to the Utah Motorsports Campus for a day of drifting in the Stang.
Earlier this year, Lia Block made donuts easy in a 355-horsepower Gymkhana Ford Escort, and that was less than a week after learning to drive the stick. So this last adventure must have felt like a relative walk in the park for the teenager. Because it is sometimes difficult to learn from your parents, Block enlisted Formula Drift champion Vaughn Gittin Jr. to pilot a shotgun and show him the tricks of the trade.
Halfway through the lesson, a coolant leak threatened to spoil the fun. But after punching a few holes in the Mustang’s bumper, Lia was back on track and drifting like a pro. Sadly, but perhaps predictably, the day wouldn’t end without a few other parts of the car falling apart. But as Vaughn Gittin Jr. says, it’s just another day of drifting in real life. And an amazing day of driver training that is sure to make other teenagers very, very jealous.
Watch Lia Block’s master drift away in the video below.
