Wet and Cold weather greeted the competitors for the first day of racing in Global Rallycross (GRC) in Munich.
The track for this event has been created in a large parking lot and it is made up of an equal amount of dirt and gravel sections, some very tight corners, a very long start/finish straightaway, and of course a large jump. This events jump is made out from a large mound of dirt, a nice change to the metal table tops we have seen in the past in the US rounds of GRC.
A new addition to the championship this year is the Penalty box. It is a 50m lane, much like a shortened pit lane, it is designed to allow the event organisers to hand out stop go penalty’s to drivers who jump the start or are rough driving.
“This feature allows Race Control to quickly and efficiently deal with infractions without having to resort to a red flag and/or re-start the race,” explains GRC Founder Brian Gale. “It keeps the action going, and this is what our fans and drivers alike are looking for.”
