“Patrik Sandell brings a great deal of experience and success to us as we embark on this exciting new project in the Red Bull Global Rallycross Series," said team owner Bryan Herta. “Kobalt Tools is a terrific brand that fits extremely well with our team and the toughness of the series. Together we’ll form a combination that challenges for wins from the first race of the season."
“Kobalt Tools is excited to continue its partnership with Patrik Sandell and Global Rallycross for the 2015 season," said Reggie Thomas, Kobalt director of brand management. “After a strong 2014 season, which included Patrik’s first win in the series, we are looking forward to being a part of what lies ahead for both him and his new team, Bryan Herta Rallysport."
Sandell, who won the Washington, D.C. round of GRC in 2014, will combine his vast rally racing experience with the depth and knowledge of an Indianapolis 500 winning team to challenge for the GRC Supercar title. The former Junior World Rally Championship winner finished sixth in both the 2013 and 2014 GRC Supercar championships.
