The Hoonigan Racing Division[1] (previously known as the Monster World Rally Team) is a motor racing team that competes in the World Rally Championship, Global RallyCross Championship, FIA World Rallycross Championship and Rally America.[2][3]

The team was formed by Ken Block at the beginning of 2010 as a platform for him to compete at world championship level. The team, sponsored by Monster Energy, ran a 2011-spec Ford Fiesta RS WRC for Block and co-driver Alex Gelsomino at selected events in the World Rally Championship. In 2012, the team entered a second car for Australian driver Chris Atkinson at the Rally of Mexico, though they have not submitted a second entry since.

At the Global Rallycross, Block finished 5th in 2012, 3rd in 2013, 2nd in 2014 and 7th in 2015. Block also claimed a third-place finish and a fourth at the 2014 World Rallycross Championship.

In 2016, Block will compete full-time at the FIA World Rallycross Championship alongside Andreas Bakkerud, driving all-new Ford Focus RS. The car is built and run by M-Sport,[4] a British motorsport team, who also build and prepare the cars for every rally team and several rallycross teams competing with the Fiesta model.
