GRC Names SCCA Pro As Sanctioning Body

LOS ANGELES, Feb. 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Global Rallycross Championship (GRC) is pleased to announce the signing of a sanctioning agreement with SCCA Pro Racing.

SCCA Pro Racing, a subsidiary of Sports Car Club of America, Inc., will provide sanctioning for all nine rounds of the 2013 GRC Championship, working in conjunction with local sporting authorities for three international rounds planned in Brazil, Spain and Germany.

Colin Dyne, CEO of GRC commented. "SCCA was a logical choice for us and we look forward to working together with them as we expand our series. Through our relationship with SCCA Pro Racing, GRC will now be an FIA recognized series which is an important step for international growth."

SCCA is a member of the Automobile Competition Committee for the United States (ACCUS), the National Sporting Authority for the Federation Internationale de l'Automobile (FIA) in the USA.

"SCCA Pro Racing is very pleased to work with Global Rallycross on this exciting project," SCCA Pro Racing President & CEO Tom Campbell said. "We will be able to provide them with excellent sanction and support services, and assist in the growth of the series and the rallycross sport in the U.S. and internationally."

"This is a logical partnership given both GRC's and SCCA's interest in the growing sport of rallycross on both professional and amateur levels, and we're excited about the potential this has for our members," SCCA, Inc. President and CEO Jeff Dahnert said. 

SCCA Pro Racing will license all GRC drivers and also provide FIA licenses for drivers competing in international events. SCCA Pro will further provide, via ACCUS, listing of all GRC events on the FIA International Calendar.
