For the first time the Red Bull Global Rallycross Red Bull Global Rallycross Championship kicks off the 2015 season with a spectacular race on the beautiful Fort Lauderdale Beach! With water surrounding the track the ambiance was a unique vibe with sea breeze cooling off the 600HP Super Cars! Bahia Mar set the stage with the track surrounding the docks and some of the most beautiful yachts. The first stop of the 2015 Tour this rallycross pleased with a awesome an jump and sand trap section.
Ken Block and his Hoonigan Fiesta ran a great race coming in first in front of Speed and Piquet Jr. These super cars boast big power and handling that allows them to clear the sections with tremendous velocity. The Lites cars are just as agile but have a little less power, they can still leap off of the ramp like the big boys! Austin Cindric in the Olsbergs Lite car steadily paced through the heats to take the victory. Fernandez and Eriksson were fast in 2nd and 3rd for the lites class.
This event was a treat for the start of the summer here in South Florida. The next stop for the Red Bull series is in Daytona Florida – be sure to watch it live on NBC! A big shout out goes to the Drivers and Red Bull Race Officials for putting on a great event. Enjoy the photos.
