The automotive, motorsports, marketing and apparel worlds are all mourning the loss of rally racing and “Gymkhana” icon Ken Block, who died in a snowmobile accident on Jan. 3.
On Wednesday, Hoonigan co-founder Brian Scotto and other Hoonigan members posted a video on the company’s YouTube channel that included a brief business update.
The crew is returning to Hoonigan headquarters in Long Beach, California, after a celebration of life last week.
Scotto noted that much of the footage shot in 2022 has yet to be released, most of which includes Block himself. The team plans to release that content, possibly as early as next week.
The Block family formed a foundation called the 43 Institute. According to Scotto, more details will be released on the foundation and the thin website will be updated and redesigned. Currently, the site has a mission statement that talks about creating avenues of opportunity for the particularly motivated and those who may lack a proper support system for growth and success. Donations are being accepted, more details to come.
At 4:30 in the video, Scotto invites viewers to watch a six-minute “Ken enjoying his life and really living it to the fullest.”
The video ends with the Block, “I try to inspire people to be creative and have an interesting life. Don’t be an asshole.”
