Global Rallycross Starts The 2013 Season At X Games In Foz Do Iguacu, Brazil

FOZ DO IGUACU, Brazil, April 24, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Global Rallycross kicked off its nine-race 2013 season with a wildly popular and successful event at X Games Foz do Iguacu. The race, won by current NASCAR driver Scott Speed, featured one of the most talented and diverse fields in Global Rallycross history, and was acclaimed by fans and drivers alike as a strong season opener.

"The week was incredible from the atmosphere at the X Games to the energy in the paddock," said Scott Speed, Global Rallycross gold medal winner at X Games Brazil. "The track was amazing. We found our line we needed to run early, where the grip was good, and most of the good guys knew where to find it. Winning gold was like a dream. I want to thank Rdio, X Games, and especially Global Rallycross for giving us a great event and race track to race on.

The weekend began with Friday practice, as drivers went out on the predominantly dirt-based track for the first time. Seeding followed on Saturday, with 2011 X Games Rally Car Racing gold medalist Liam Doran setting the fastest time over Speed and defending Global Rallycross champion Tanner Foust.

"It is great Global Rallycross has such a dynamic and talented field of drivers," said Colin Dyne, Global Rallycross CEO. "With drivers from all different racing backgrounds, it allows for suspense as to which driver will use their particular skillset to outperform other competitors in the field."

Competitors learned very quickly that throughout the weekend, they would have to constantly adapt to the changing track conditions which made for exciting racing.

"I love the experience of driving these kinds of cars in these kind of races at these kind of tracks," said Nelson Piquet Jr., driver of the X Team Racing Mitsubishi. "It is really competitive. Unfortunately I didn't make the final, but it leaves me even more fired up for the next race.
