Los Angeles, CA (January 4, 2018) – Red Bull Global Rallycross today unveiled its 2018 series schedule, featuring 12 rounds, eight events, and the series’ long-awaited return to Europe. The 2018 Red Bull Global Rallycross season will feature three distinct classes of racing, with Polaris RZR side-by-side competition joining the Supercar and GRC Lites championships.
Top drivers expected to compete in the international championship include three-time defending Supercar champion and ex-Formula 1 star Scott Speed, rallycross and drifting champion Tanner Foust, NASCAR veteran and 2017 Fan Favorite Driver of the Year Steve Arpin, World Rally Championship veteran Chris Atkinson, and many others.
“This year’s strong slate of fan-favorite domestic stops, coupled with a return to Europe to wrap up the 2018 championship, guarantee an off-the-charts season,” said Red Bull GRC CEO Colin Dyne. “Add into the mix the launch of our new Polaris RZR side-by-side class, there is no doubt GRC continues to expand the rallycross landscape!”
