China, Zhuhai International Circuit Drift competition
I’ve just got back from China and we brought home the 2017 Championship. Its a pretty surreal feeling and after 3 years competing over in China we finally managed to bring home the Championship. It wasn’t without drama and plenty of ups and downs though. Mechanical dramas, mis communication with the Chinese mechanics, crazy weather including Typhoons. you name it and we pretty well had to endure it. What a crazy year its been to say the least.
I tried a new avenue of sharing the adventure with all my fans and followers, I took my GoPros and captured as much footage as I could on and off the track. Editing every night and trying to upload the footage before I hoped back in the car each day. It was another challenge I put on myself but the enjoyment I get from sharing it with everyone is priceless. Here is the Link to my Video series from the recent Championship Winning trip. >> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8FreGgNe7Zc&index=1&list=PLQWls4DETwzNIFbEF-MmO3PD_6nHvuXDu&t=25s Continue reading
It wasn’t as smooth of a path as Saturday’s clean sweep, but Tanner Foust remained undefeated in Red Bull Global Rallycross events at Evergreen Speedway with a Supercar final victory on Sunday. Foust bested his Volkswagen Andretti Rallycross teammate Scott Speed, who had been perfect heading into the main event, with Subaru Rally Team USA’s Patrik Sandell finishing third.
“It’s true—Scott could have swept the title this weekend,” said Foust. “We held him off from that, but more importantly we held off Steve Arpin from gaining points. Finishing 1-2 twice puts Volkswagen Andretti Rallycross in the championship 1-2 with Scott leading. It was just an amazing effort from all the guys, and I’m so happy for the whole team.”
Much like Foust on Saturday, Speed was perfect in his heats and semifinals to take the top spot heading into the main event. But a terrific start from Foust, the four-time Fan Favorite Driver of the Year, enabled him to grab a lead that he would never relinquish. Behind them, Sunday polesitter Sandell would take his second podium in the past four races, while Supercar newcomer Austin Cindric and Saturday polesitter Chris Atkinson would complete the top five.
In GRC Lites, Christian Brooks won the battle, but Cyril Raymond won the war in Sunday’s main event. After a first-lap collision claimed James Rimmer’s car and forced a red flag and restart, Raymond restarted in the lead despite missing his entire hood and front bumper, but Brooks used a later Joker Lap strategy to make the pass and take his third victory of the season. Still, second-place points were enough for Raymond to claim the 2017 Lites title—his second in eight days, after earning the European title in France last weekend.
