If rallysport is the purest form of motorsport, then rallycross has to be the purest form of racing. It certainly is the most exciting, for fans and drivers alike. The sport isn’t new, having been active across the Atlantic for decades, where competitors battle it out of race tracks that are a combination of dirt and pavement. With the launch of the Global RallyCross Championship a couple of years ago though, the excitement was pushed to a whole new level.
Factory teams prepare fearsome machines adorned with big name sponsors as drivers like Ken Block, Travis Pastrana and Tanner Faust battle it out on tracks that also include massive jumps. The competition is fierce and often leads to mass carnage as drivers try to occupy the same bit of track space.
GoPro has been a big part of Global RallyCross since its inception, with dozens of cameras being located around each track and in/on all of the cars. GoPro has just released this killer compilation of some of the best action from the 2013 season.
