I'm sorry, but I'm afraid I don't understand how imaginary time relates to a mass moving faster than light. Black holes are thought to be the collapsed remnants of gigantic stars, so they should remain relatively immobile (at least, with no more movement than the star it was previously had). But I don't really know anything about Hawking's theories on imaginary time. Perhaps if you could give me a source to look it up in?
