Americas Rallycross Championship set to debut at Silverstone
By: RACER Staff | May 22, 2018
The Americas Rallycross Championship, a new series featuring rallycross stars and drivers from the formed Red Bull Global Rallycross Series, will debut at Silverstone as part of the Speedmachine festival this weekend.
The ARC was initially launched in March by IMG, the international sports marketing giant which organizes the World and European Rallycross championships. It was meant to rival GRC until the latter series abruptly ceased operations in April amid a litany of legal action and unpaid bills to vendors and host venues.
Among the teams and drivers committed to the series are Volkswagen Andretti Rallycross with drivers Tanner Foust and Scott Speed and Subaru Rally Team USA with drivers Patrik Sandell, David Higgins, and Chris Atkinson. Ken Block and his Hoonigan Racing Division announced in April that they have teamed up with rallycross driver Steve Arpin and Loenbro Motorsports with an intent to take part in the inaugural season.
