Global Rallycross Drops Detroit Event
LOS ANGELES — Red Bull Global Rallycross has announced an adjustment to its 2014 event calendar, effective immediately.
Red Bull Global Rallycross Los Angeles, previously scheduled for Sept. 19-20 on the Port of Los Angeles, will be extended to a three-day event, replacing the series’ round in Detroit scheduled for Aug. 2-3.
Red Bull Global Rallycross Los Angeles will now serve as a doubleheader event, ensuring the preservation of the series’ 10-race championship. The race weekend will now kick off on Friday, Sept. 19, while dual finals will be run on Saturday, Sept. 20 and Sunday, Sept. 21. Both events will be televised live on NBC.
In addition to the scheduled broadcasts, the series will run a 90-minute mid-season recap broadcast on Sunday, Aug. 3 at 4:30 p.m. ET, which will include new and exclusive content to help showcase Red Bull Global Rallycross to its ever-growing fanbase.
“Los Angeles has been the home of Red Bull Global Rallycross since the series was founded, and is home to some of our most passionate fans as well,” said Red Bull Global Rallycross CEO Colin Dyne. “By converting our round in Los Angeles into a three-day event and points-paying doubleheader, we offer additional value to our fans in one of our core markets, as well as creating additional championship intrigue for our fans watching at home on NBC. We remain committed to our fanbase in Detroit, and we look forward to racing in the Motor City in 2015.”
