Global RallyCross to start in April
Red Bull has released the 2017 schedule for Global RallyCross (GRC).
I am a huge fan of RallyCoss because it combines track racing with off-road/dirt racing, and it is very fast paced racing. If you blink you will miss something. This year they will be making a couple of stops in Canada so maybe we see some snow racing even if the events are set in June, but it’s Canada. Here is the Red Bull CEO on this years events.
“This should be a banner year for Red Bull GRC as we continue our ascent in the world of motorsport,” said Red Bull GRC CEO, Colin Dyne. “We listened to the feedback from our fans, and the 2017 schedule reflects the demand to bring our unique brand of racing to new locations, as well as to return to a number of fan-favorite venues from previous seasons.”
