The team again takes racing to the fans with purpose-built racetracks in unexpected settings convenient to major markets
The Red Bull Global Rallycross is taking its action motorsport capabilities to several new markets. It is returning to fan-favourite locations as part of this year’s championship schedule just announced. The 12-race schedule spans the period running from May to October 2016.
The entire competition series will be broadcast on NBC’s family of networks, with a majority of Supercar action broadcast live on NBC. For the sixth year, the team again takes racing to the fans with purpose-built racetracks in unexpected settings convenient to major markets.
The series’ tracks feature a mix of dirt and pavement as well as a signature 70-foot jump. At each round, star drivers in 600-horsepower Supercars will battle through multiple heats, semi-finals, and a last chance qualifier for a spot in the winner-take-all main event.
Also, open paddocks at each race allow fans to get up close to the drivers and cars. The latest slate builds on the series’ success, with new courses which are longer and faster than ever before. Recent seasons have seen the series hold events in urban locations including Los Angeles and Washington DC.
Equally essential, doubleheaders will prove crucial to the championship, with the season kicking-off with a brand new doubleheader event in Phoenix. Three more will follow throughout the season, concluding with the series’ signature doubleheader event in LA.
“We’re excited to bring our high-octane brand of motorsport to multiple new locations while maintaining some of our most popular stops and returning to our fan-favourite market of Seattle. This year’s events will once again raise the bar and produce some of our most exciting action yet,” Colin Dyne, CEO of the Red Bull GRC.
