GRC kicked off the 1st round of this 2 day event at Toyota Speedway. Several cars made it’s debut including the Hyundai Veloster, Dave Mirra’s Subaru Impreza WRX STI and Marcus Gronholm’s Best Buy Ford Fiesta. Crashes. Jumps. Dirt. Rally action! There was plenty of excitement on and off the track. This was the first time I covered motorsports. It was fun!
I had the opportunity to cover the 2011 Global RallyCross event. While I was there, I paid a visit to the Ford Rally Team base-camp where some of the world’s best drivers were present: Tanner Foust and WRC Legend Marcus Gronholm.
