Red Bull Global Rallycross has been busy getting busy lately. On Monday January 25th, they announced a multi-year contract with BF Goodrich Tires to be their official supplier. This is a change from Japanese supplier Yokohama who they had partnered with previously.
On Tuesday, the 2016 Championship schedule was issued – with some surprise new cities as well as welcome repeat locations. GRC will return to Daytona, a military base for a pre-Independence Day double header, Washington DC, and a double-header in Los Angeles for the final stop. New to the calendar are Phoenix and Dallas, with one wildcard date TBA – and Seattle is back on the calendar after being skipped in 2015. Missing after 2015 is Tampa, Detroit, Barbados, and most curiously – Las Vegas for the championship.
