Los Angeles, CA, (June 1, 2016) – Red Bull Global Rallycross announces its return to MCAS New River in Jacksonville, North Carolina for the second consecutive season. The world’s best rallycross drivers will compete at MCAS New River once again on July 4th weekend, with this year’s festivities expanding to a doubleheader.
“We are honored to have the opportunity to return to MCAS New River for the second year in a row,” said Red Bull GRC CEO Colin Dyne. “We had an incredible experience racing in front of the Marines and their families last year, making this event an obvious choice to expand to a doubleheader this year!”
This year’s event will feature an all-new course layout, bringing the track even closer to the fans. Attendees will be able to get up close to the starting grid and feel the rumble of 6,000 horsepower as 10 of the world’s greatest drivers launch in dual Supercar finals on Saturday and Sunday.
The inaugural Red Bull GRC event at MCAS New River last July marked the first time that a major motorsports series held a championship event on an active military installation. This year’s event will serve as the halfway point of the 2016 season, with Saturday and Sunday action serving as rounds six and seven of the 12-race schedule. A full field of Supercar and GRC Lites drivers, including superstars Tanner Foust, Brian Deegan, and defending champion Scott Speed, is expected to be on hand for the event.
Red Bull GRC at MCAS New River will be open to the general public on Sunday, July 3, with free general admission access and premium paid ticketing options also available. On Saturday July 2, the event will be open exclusively to Department of Defense ID cardholders and their sponsored guests for Military Appreciation Day.
