Officials from Volkswagen Rallycross DC have unveiled a thrilling new track layout for the third round of the 2014 Red Bull Global Rallycross Series, to take place at the RFK Festival Grounds June 21-22. The exciting 0.5-mile, combination tarmac and dirt course features ten turns of varying radius and speed, and the famous Red Bull Global Rallycross jump.
"The exhilarating new track we're building on the RFK Festival Grounds will provide excellent racing for all the fans at Volkswagen Rallycross DC," said Tim Mayer-General Manager, Volkswagen Rallycross DC. "The quick run down to the hairpin Turn 3 will be the site of many side-by-side passing attempts, and the tight, technical portion of the course after the jump will test drivers' patience and the set-ups of these 600-horsepower Supercars."
"The DC track map looks to be one of the best layouts to date from GRC, with fast straights and wide turns for proper passing," said 2014 GRC X Games silver medalist and Maryland native, Bucky Lasek. "I'm really looking forward to showing my speed and race craft in front of the nation's capital and my neighboring Maryland home."
"The racing at Volkswagen Rallycross DC will be unlike anything the district's ever seen," added Tim Mayer. "Fans all around the RFK festival grounds will have the perfect vantage point to see history in the making June 21-22!"
