What Is Global Rallycross Championship Racing?
- Global Rallycross Championship events are a combination of circuit racing, off-road racing and rally competition
- There are two classes of competition at GRC events, the 600 brake horsepower Supercar class and the 320 brake horsepower GRC Lites class
- Rallycross debuted in 2010 at the X Games in Los Angeles
What Kind Of Racing Can Fans Expect?
- Door-to-door racing on a combination of dirt and asphalt surfaces, featuring drifting turns, jumps and water elements
- Courses are custom-built at each venue and are typically designed to be less than one mile in length
- Practices are broken into one-hour sessions
- Qualifying is one-hour in length and is broken into 10-minute group sessions, which will determine which drivers are in each heat race and their starting grid position
- Heats are rounds of four individual heat races, with up to six cars per heat
- A last chance qualifier features a set number of cars that do not transfer from the heats racing to try to qualify into the final round feature race
- The feature race typically consists of 10 cars for 10 laps of competition
- In each race, drivers are required to take a “joker lap,” a diversion that typically adds time to the regular lap and will factor into a driver’s race strategy
- The “joker lap” can be run on any lap of the race, and only one time
- Cars are production-based vehicles that can be purchased at local dealerships and then customized
- GRC features two types of cars: the Supercar and GRC Lites
- Supercars are restricted to 600 brake horsepower
- The Supercars are turbo-charged and accelerate to 60 mph in 1.9 seconds
- The GRC Lites are 320 brake horsepower, are normally-aspirated (non-turbo) and accelerate to 60 mph in 3.5 seconds.
