TICKFORD Racing is set to roll out a Ken Block tribute livery at this week’s VAILO Adelaide 500.

The Ford Supercars squad released a teaser via social media tonight, with what appears to be Cam Waters’ Monster Energy Mustang donning the #43 and ‘KB43ever’ (Ken Block forever).

Block, who was sponsored by Monster and ran #43 himself, was killed in a snowmobile accident in the United States earlier this year.

Waters normally uses #6 and his livery is very rarely tweaked.

Fittingly, Block drove a Ford Performance Racing #6 Supercar at Calder Park in 2011.
