Red Bull Global Rallycross Series adds New Orleans, Europe to 2018 Calendar

The Red Bull Global Rallycross Series has announced its events calendar for the 2018 racing season.

This year the growing race series will kick off with an event in Louisville, Kentucky on May 19-20, before heading to a yet-to-be-announced location for the second event of the season on June 9-10 – a doubleheader. It will then make its way to Los Angeles on June 23-24 and head to Indianapolis for a double-header weekend on August 11-12. The season continues with a doubleheader in Atlantic City on August 25-26 and a race in Seattle on September 15-16. The schedule closes out with an event in a yet-to-be-announced European city on October 27-28.

GRC’s return to Europe will mark the first time it’s raced there since 2013. Events that have been dropped from the calendar for 2018 include Memphis, TN, Thompson, CT, and Ottawa, Canada.

“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!”
