Las Vegas, 06.11.2014



Seattle, 29.09.2014


Scott Speed remains on course for the championship win.

 

The American Scott Speed finished in sixth place in the penultimate race of the Global Rallycross Championship in Seattle. The former Formula 1 driver competing for Volkswagen Andretti Autosport is therefore still in the running for the overall win. The drivers’ championship will be decided at the season final in Las Vegas on 5 November.

 

Speed’s fellow American Tanner Foust got behind the wheel of the new 544 hp Beetle GRC for the second time in Seattle. The US star put in the fourth-fastest time during the qualifying session, but failed to make it into the final due to a number of skirmishes. Foust nonetheless firmly believes in the qualities of the new car. “This was another important step in the development of the Beetle. At the end of the event, it was one of the fastest cars on the track. And we will see further improvements in Las Vegas,” said Foust.

 

Victory in Seattle went to Sverre Isachsen of Norway, who drives for Subaru Rally Team USA. The Finnish driver Joni Wiman of Ford Olsbergs MSE finished in second place, less than a second behind Isachsen, and succeeded in defending his overall lead. The American Brian Deegan (Ford) was third-placed with Rockstar Energy Drink.


Los Angeles, 22.09.2014



Daytona, 25.08.2014


Victory remains elusive in the Sunshine State
 – Tanner Foust sixth in Daytona final.


Tanner Foust took sixth place in the fifth round of the Global Rallycross Championship in Daytona (USA). He defeated several drivers in the final at the wheel of the 500-plus-horsepower Volkswagen Polo RX Supercar, including championship leader Nelson Piquet Junior. Foust’s team-mate Scott Speed finished a disappointing tenth. With four weekends of racing to go, Speed is still in a promising third place overall with 190 points, ranking behind Piquet Jr. (245 points) and Ken Block (205). Tanner Foust is currently eighth overall. The next races in the Global Rallycross Championship will take place in Los Angeles (USA) on 21 September.

 


Charlotte, 28.07.2014


Andretti drivers pick up

important championship points in Charlotte.

After the victory at the Global Rallycross race in New York a week ago, the Volkswagen team Andretti Autosport suffered a slight setback in their fight for the championship at the fifth race of the season in Charlotte. On the extremely rough Dirt Track in the US state of North Carolina, unusually the two Andretti drivers Scott Speed (USA) and Tanner Foust (USA) did not finish in the top three in their Volkswagen Polo RX Supercars with over 500 hp: Speed finished fifth, Foust, hindered by tyre problems, was eighth. Victory went to Ken Block (USA). The former Formula 1 driver Nelson Piquet jr. (BR) now leads the overall standings with 227 points. Speed is in second with 181 points.


New York, 21.07.2014



Washington, 23.06.2014


Fifth and sixth for Foust and Speed in Washington.


The two Andretti Autosport team Volkswagen Polo RXs reached the final of the third Global Rallycross event in Washington (USA): Tanner Foust (USA) finished fifth, while team-mate Scott Speed (USA), the ex-Formula One and NASCAR driver, came home sixth. Foust was on the brink of missing out on the final, but came through his duel in the “Last Chance Qualifier” to qualify. “Generally speaking, the car has plenty of speed and we will be back among the front-runners in New York,” said Speed. He now leads the overall standings with 110 points, ahead of Nelson Piquet Jr. (BR), with Foust in 13 place on eleven points.

 

The next Global Rallycross event will be held in New York (USA) on 20 July.
