Lia Block Will Race A Subaru BRZ With Ken Block-Inspired Livery To Honor Her Dad

Motorsport’s international governing body, the FIA, retired the number 43 earlier this year, making it one of only two numbers ever retired by the global motorsports body (albeit only for the 2023 season in the case of Block’s number). The first was Jules Bianchi’s number 17. That means the total of numbers racers are not allowed to use is actually three, as only the reigning world champion is allowed to use the number 1.

“The shockwaves of Ken’s passing were seismic,” said Jeremy Meyer, ARA Business and Marketing Director. “As with everyone else, we worked through the grief of losing Ken, and when the time was right, we began discussions with the Block family on how to honor him. That begins with retiring the 43, with only the family being able to use it from now on.”
