The world famous Global Rallycross driver, Gymkhana Drift legend and partner of ST suspensions, Ken Block, always has time for his fans.
Thanks to the ultimate ST Suspensions sweepstakes in early November, some Ken Block fans fulfilled a dream of a lifetime: they met their idol! Spencer Croom from the USA and the German ST Suspensions dealer, Thomas Beringer of Extreme Customs Germany, won a trip to the SEMA Show in Las Vegas and met Ken Block there not only for an autograph session.
The rally driver spent the whole evening and sat down for a private dinner with these lucky guys!
At “Morton’s The Steakhouse,” while having a nice dinner, Ken Block reminisced that he was a fan of rally sports since his childhood, but in his youth never had the chance to get into motorsports.
At the age of 16 he had his first drifting experience in a pickup truck owned by his father. But at the end of the day he took up motocross riding, skateboarding and of course snowboarding.
By the end of his 30’s Ken had already gotten the chance to start in professional rally sports. Today the 48-year-old athlete is driving in the Global Rallycross championship, starting at the X-Games, drove in the World Rally Championship and has been made legendary by his incredible gymkhana videos!
The ST suspensions sweepstakes winners also met at the dinner some Hoonigan Racing team members, Matt Tuccillo and the German TV host and KW brand ambassador Sidney Hoffmann, as well as the founder of KW automotive, Klaus Wohlfarth.
Over several years Klaus Wohlfarth lived in the US and laid the foundation of the success for KW suspensions and ST suspensions in North America.
Many visitors of the SEMA show also took advantage of the opportunity to be photographed together with Ken Block and Klaus Wohlfarth at the Ken Block autograph session which was held at the KW automotive booth!
As the exclusive Meet and Greet with Ken Block was happening in Vegas, Spencer Croom and Thomas Beringer enjoyed a thick stack of spending money as part of their prize and the opportunity to visit the SEMA show as a ST suspensions VIP visitor.
