For those of us in Australia who have been following the Global Rallycross Championship, now sponsored by Redbull,for the past few years, now have a extra special reason to follow the championship this year. We have an Aussie competing. AUSSIE AUSSIE AUSSIE OI OI OI !!!!!
Sarah Burgess is the name all us Aussie Motorsport fans need to remember.
First Ken Block switched from Subaru to Ford to shock of fans.
Now Tanner Foust has done the same thing, except its from a Scion Drift Car (Toyota) to a Ford Fiesta Rally Car, where he will be running at the Rallycross Event as part of Xgames 17 this year
Foust will also compete in the Global Rallycross Championship (GRC) and European Rallycross Championship (ERC) as part of his deal with Ford
Foust has been a professional driver since 96, and is best known for his involvement in Drifiting in the USA, he has also done a lot of stunt work for different films including Fast & Furious – Tokyo Drift
Foust is also one of the hosts of Topgear USA.
Should be very interesting to watch and see how he goes against the top Euro Drivers.
Below is a promo video Foust has done as part of his deal with Ford
